For reference, this is approximately one boat's worth of paint.
Currently I'm stripping all the paint, making small repairs to the hull and deck, and preparing to repaint.
The boat was built in Canada, probably in the 1950s. Her original design is a Sea Bird yawl, ca. 1910, but she was heavily modified sometime in the 1970s.
I found this boat for sale. As you can tell from the picture, she needs work. But the hull was sound and the price was right.
Some background: I grew up sailing and have always loved boats, but for... reasons have not owned one for some time. Last year I resolved to change that.
