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.

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.
