30 years to build steel sailboat

I am looking for the name of the steel sailboat that the owner spent 30 years to build. He built it in New England and launched it a few years ago. He has a nice web site that chronicals the whole story. Anybody out there with the name of the boat?

Wow indeed..... suggest you take the time to have a look at his blog... it'll take more than a few minutes. This is workmanship that is unbelievable.. no wonder it took so long. Great commentary in the galleries too.

That is definitely a one-of-a-kind!

That is dedication right there. That boat is worth more than money.

That's not a boat, that's a work of art. It should be in a museum. Just amazing.

There are a couple of guys in my harbor that have spent decades building wooden boats. Both are beautiful, professional craft.

I usually scan this board daily, but don't often post, and I want to apologize for not responding sooner. I didn't realize Restless had been mentioned until now.

Thanks all for the comments, and I'm pleased that you've enjoyed the web site and the boat. The web site is sorely in need of a makeover, and an updating, and I hope to get to that this winter. Right now I'm in the middle of a real teak and holly sole (not plywood) and I'm trying to get that project over the hill before the really cold weather arrives and makes epoxy work a little more problematic.

Many thanks to all who commented.

Best, Bob [www.sv-restless.com]
