Contest 33′ Restoration

I am currently restoring a 33-foot Contest sailboat.  She was born in the Netherlands in 1974, spent her youth in the North Sea and her adolescence in the storied waters of Long Island Sound, survived Hurricane Sandy, and now runs before the gusty wind of the Hudson River, her face faded from a life at sea.  But wrinkles, as we know, only show where the smiles have been, and the sun removes her old varnish better than any solvent could.
