RESTORE AN OLD SAIL BOAT

Previously we've asked you to send in your entries for an old 'Wooden' boat that you have restored. This year we're adding the 'plastic classics' or the 'Greatest Hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80-s by asking you to send us a photo of any 'vintage' sailing boat or sailing tender that you are bringing back to life. We know there are lots of older boats out there, and many of them are being picked up by new sailors who want to experience the sailing lifestyle without the high-end costs.  Doesn't have to be a 'designer showcase' vessel - just some faded glory that is now sailing again!  Enjoy it.

Maybe you're doing a bottom job...                                    Or some rewiring....                                                        

    

Or maybe a bit of everything...

Whatever it is, we want to see it! So if you've been working hard on sanding, grinding, painting, gluing, rebuilding, polishing, or even stitching up canvas send us some pics and a description of what you’ve done.  And if you haven't started, but intend to... throw off the tarps, find your sandpaper and get out those brushes and cleaning tools. 

To give you an idea of what people have done in the past, here are two of last years' entries -
