A year ago, after "unearthing" Spark from the barn she had been stored in for almost 30 years, I took this picture.
At the time, all I had done was give her a bath, fix the mast and rigging, and touch up the paint where it had peeled. This was all done before heading to St. Michaels MD for the Small Craft Festival. She was rough, she was barely held together, but she sailed well. She also got completely ignored due to the condition she was in. I did this on purpose so I could do this:
Same Spark one year later. Completely sanded down hull, new paint, almost all new varnish, and a new deck give her an almost completely new look.
