Phase I 
Fall 2007

Kip and Linda Newbould of Coles Point, VA recently purchased the 1970 MK-I Yawl TEVAKE from  Chris Anderson.  Kip and Linda have begun a complete rebuild/refurbish of  TEVAKE which will include installation of a new engine. They are renaming the boat and the new name will be MISCHIEF.

Kip and Linda have considerable experience refurbisbing/repairing boats in general, having owned numerous sailboats and powerboats, and have worked in the boat repair industry for years.  They also have considerable cruising experience having cruised for years in the Caribbean , Bahamas , New England , etc.

The boat is in sound condition (hull and deck wise), but is in need of systems upgrade, cosmetic work on hull, topsides and deck, refurbishing the interior, etc. etc. The boat came with new sails, a life raft along with numerous items which will be refurbished and placed back into commission.

Work so far includes removal of unwanted/unneeded deck hardware, filling of hardware mounting holes, and general preparation for refurbishing of the deck and cabintop.  The topsides have been repaired, sanded (removal of several coats of paint down to the original gel coat) and generally prepared for eventual repainting later this spring.  An inoperable engine (Perkins Perama) has been removed and a substitute engine, a used Yanmar is in the process of being installed.

Below are a few photos of MISCHIEF in the early stages of work we expect to see further accounts of this restoration/refurbishing as work progresses.
