Vasilis Zairopoulos 

Vasilis Zairopoulos has been my friend for many years. He has a great deal of experience with boats. With his own hands he has constructed a small sailboat, and he is now building a new and larger one, also by himself.

Because of his experience Vasilis was a valuable source of advice on many technical issues during my restoration project. In particular his advice concerning epoxy resins during the reconstruction of the gunwale and worn ribs was invaluable.
