Show off your resto project.

After seeing Bristol321's before and after pics, I'd like to see some more.

Show off your restoration / major refit project, finished or not.

Here's mine, with a few small details left to do this spring, but sailing anyway.

Wow, that was seriously serious. Kudos to you, I couldn't go that far unless it had some sentimental value, er, I mean was worth a lot of money.

While your honesty in saying this is commendably, I'd seriously have to question your intelligence...and your survival instincts.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

When I was boat shopping, I looked pretty hard at a Cheoy Lee. I thought it would need too much work to get it back on the water. Now I have a Bayliner that I did twice the work to, but is worth (on a good day) half as much. If I knew then what I know now......

And when you buy your next boat, you'll probably do it all over again.

You have to set up a photobucket account (or similar). The image uploading feature on sailnet has never worked. Once you get an account, put your pics on it and copy the pics image codes and paste.....viola

Dictated, but not read.

Mike-

Sailnet's photo posting feature has always been buggy... read this post as to how to get around the problem, along with some other good advice about dealing with Sailnet's quirks. LINK
