Where's the restoration at?

Been so hectic busy with work and arranging events that I have neglected the blog a bit.  New Sailing on Elbow Grease episode is being edited...but till then I can say that the boat does not look like a half eaten fish anymore, but actually resembles a boat...

...aft panels are on, now time to sand and then turn the boat over.

Progress or Regress?

After almost 6 hours and ZAR818 ($70) later one needs to ask the question - am I making progress?

Pre Party Progress Report

It's New Year's eve and taking stock of time spent restoring Extra 688 left me a bit ashamed that the tally is standing on a mere 4 hours of work done so far. New Years Resolution Guideline, speed up the restoration and get on the water.

Here is a brief progress report before the the first festive cork is pulled from the bottle and wine is poured and glasses clinked.
