Spring project - International Folkebåd Facelift - Day 1
This is our first day working on the boat to get it summer ready. It's been up on land during the icy winter. Saturday we took off the cover and stated scraping off layers of paint on the hull all the way back to the original color from the 1970's. We are giving the boat a little makeover this year. The boat was designed in 1967, it's a classic Scandinavian sailboat, folkebåd (peoples boat), kind of like volkswagen beetle of boats. Well this is only day one of many. The boat goes into the water at the end of April, then it's officially summer sailing season for us.
