Back in the water after 50 years on the hard

Recently launched this little skiff after it spent the last 50 years decorating a nautical gift shop. 6 year restoration and more money than I ever estimated! (Don't tell my wife.) She sailed beautifully, She is all Teak,which explains why she didn't rot away. I estimate it to be 75 years old. She attracts people like a new kitten or a puppy dog. AAH! Hope to do some wooden boat shows.

Very cool little boat! Congratulations on redeeming her. Do you have any more pictures?

That is wicked cool. Congratulations! You'd be a big hit at the wooden boat festival. It will be in Mystic next time.

Check out the Shallow Water Sailors, Ken Murphy (kgmurphy@comcast.net.) They're in your neck of the woods and are kindered spitrits.
