Some of you may remember user Moggy's post in the vintage Caribbean thread. Well their resto has finished, there is a nice long thread over at Strike and Hook about it.

With A nice little video to boot.

Youtube

It is certainly giving me motivation to get back into my resto.

One of his mates who worked on it is a qualified shipwright with a fair chunk of experience in fibreglass boats (Ryan at RT Marine is the guy). There is a video of it out on the water, where it looks quite amazing.
