Barcelona: Insurance Survey of a 57' Dagless Fleur de Lys
Surveys of timber boats are always very interesting, and this Fleur de Lys was no exception. She was designed by L. Francis Jones and built in 1979. She was constructed from 1 1/2" Iroko planks on large oak frames & floors and powered by two six-cylinder Sabre diesel engines.
She was ashore in Port Ginesta, a very large marina just south of Barcelona, Spain. It's always nice to be tasked with a survey in a warm country and this was a particularly nice location in which to spend a couple of days.
