Another image from the series I did on or around the former America’s Cup challenger, during the 2011 Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart. 12 metre racert Gretel II has a compass befitting her pedigree, as seen in this shot taken in her cockpit (which also shows her port helm). New twin helms and winches with lashings of beautiful, marine grade stainless steel, as well as new decking, was installed in the course of an extensive refit in New Zealand by Dibley Marine.
