Moody 31 built by Marine Projects (Plymouth) Ltd. in 1984 to a BIll Dixon design. White GRP hull, superstructure and decks with grey moulded non-slip surfaces. Cast iron twin keels. Tiller steering to skeg hung rudder. Self-draining aft cockpit. Wild Thing Too has been maintained to a high standard with many of the age related issues commonly found already attended to. These include new windows and re-glazed hatches in 2010, all seacocks and skin fittings upgraded to Marelon in 2012, coats of Gelshield 200 and coppercoat then applied in 2012 and new rudder bearings fitted in 2015. A survey in winter 2019 recommended that the keel bolts were in need of attention with the keels requiring re-bedding. This work was carried out professionally to a high standard along with other minor works and she is now ready to enjoy the 2020 season.
