Baker Seal 28 yacht

A few years ago I bought a yacht. It’s a Baker Seal 28. I had no boating or sailing experience. Learning to sail at the local dingy club after getting the yacht. I then did RYA Powerboat Level 2 and RYA Shortwave radio courses. I had no engine maintenance experience, learning via YouTube and forums. The yacht was built by John Baker in 1976 and designed by Angus Primrose. It’s a lifting keel, in that, you put the keel down to sail it and up to beach it! Weird to have a great hole in the floor. The Bukh DV20 diesel engine is built tough, as it the strong fiberglass keel. Lucky, as the yacht was failing neglected before I got it.
