CINTRA comes in a pitiful state, with evidence of partial restoration and a lousy job, but under the surface you can still see the purity of lines and the hull of noble origin. Giorgetti & Magrini begins a difficult research work, being able to trace the original sail plan, the general plan of construction and several sketches of the spars designed by Fife. The yard starts with the work of demolition of anything that looks dilapidated, drawing a plan of what can be saved or at least restored. At the end, about 50% of the Honduras mahogany planking could be recovered. Eventually to increase the life expectation it got almost completely replaced, as well as all the Acacia frames, which are replaced and frames of galvanized iron added without compromising the style and shape of the boat. The keel appeared fully recoverable, even the stem and the sternpost, all made of elm. Since the restoration work aimed at a reconstruction absolutely faithful to the original design, the work was planned with great care and a unique attention to detail, using the same materials indicated by Fife even when these were difficult to find. The work begun with the removal of eroded planks, replaced by new ones in 35 mm mahogany, while striking a balance between traditional techniques and modern technology, the planking, laid and caulked as it was at the beginning of the century, was then treated with epoxy for higher durability. Using a technique typical for Fife, the hull of CINTRA presents a frame with alternating acacia and galvanized iron structures that ensures maximum strength without too much weight. All frames and floor timbers were removed and rebuilt as a model. The deck was completely dismantled and rebuilt with a base of 20 mm plywood, covered with planks of 15 mm douglas fir (the original essence of the deck), while sills, stringers, and hatches where redone in mahogany with maximum loyalty to the original. In the same spirit the stern and the lead keel where rebuild, similar to the original.
