Just finished my first restoration, my fathers 1954 OT Guide. he bought new it the year I was born, I inherited it 2 years ago. It wasn't rare or historic, so a good one to learn on, and plenty of nostalgia to keep me motivated through fiberglass removal, 20 broken ribs, new inwales, outwales, decks, spliced stems, and 1/4 of the planking. Thanks to everyone who helped me through this site. Put it in the water this morning, just me the dog and a lot of memories.
