I just restored mine in a boat yard for three months, and was amazed at the people who stoped their cars on the side of the road to come talk about her. Twice I went to the yard to find someone waiting by the boat to ask about her. She is a beauty though, so I cant say that I blame them.
I have to agree. I was lucky, my '65 Frisco Flyer had - for most of her life - been well taken care of. This one is a keeper. I fixed every flaw in her rigging, repaired every bit of damage in her deck and cabin, and it was all worth it. She looks stunning at 43.
