My husband Steven, and my dad are rebuilding a Windmill sailboat that Steven picked up for free . . . Well, the bottom of this boat was so rotted they had to remove it! Here is my dad sanding away planing away (oops!) after they got rid of the rot. This was in my dad's garage, but they now have a dedicated workshop -my mom is happy!! No more sawdust on her car! They are rebuilding the sailboat and changing the design a bit. It will have an epoxy/glass -as in fiberglass- finish, like my dad's boats. This is for strength and water resistance. Steven is also changing the rigging and a few other parts of this boat. It will be a 'modified windmill' when finished - wow! what a project. It keeps them both busy and off of the street!
