Restoring the LOST PERL

Restoring the LOST PERL
I know I am not a sailboat but I think you may like this story

In August 2010 I started my six boat restoration. She is 1966 Gustafsson & Anderson 103' and her new name is the "LOST PERL". She has a lot of history under her. Built in Sweden and has been all over the world. The last few owners knew little to nothing about how to care and restore a yacht of this size and now it's up to me. I own a little of land on the Cumberland river three miles from downtown Nashville that is where I spent a bit over a year getting her to a point that I may move her in a marina.

This is where I started


This is where I am

To paraphrase Dennis Gage with the curly moustache from Classic Cars, Preserve the classic beauties, dont crush them.
A tip of my hat to you, sir, Well done

Re: Restoring the LOST PERL

Thanks guys

I'll be taking her up river this weekend. Been a long time coming to get to the point that I could put her in a marina.
