Strange Bird Restoration

It’s been a goal to get the Snipe Strange Bird out sailing before the end of the year and it looks like this might happen on Labor Day weekend.  Since I picked it up in December a lot has been done to it to get it back into sailing shape:

  • patched holes in the hull
  • strengthened, reinforced and repaired damaged rails
  • fixed dings in the hull and smoothed it out
  • built a trailer
  • reinforced the deck under the seating
  • patched the centerboard trunk
  • cleaned and oiled the splash board and rub rails
  • re-ran halyards in the mast
  • replaced all running rigging
