About the lapstrake hull
With the cold-molded bottom there’s no swelling necessary. Edelweiss doesn’t take on any water at launch – even after land storage.

Restoration costs
The initial rebuild of Edelweiss was done in 2000 by the previous owner, at a cost of approx. $270,000.  A nautical engineer (family member of the  owner) oversaw every detail. The current owner has maintained those records, and those of work done since that time.
