Sailboat Project

This is a sailboat that we got in pieces. It is a Chrysler Man of War. We are attempting to rebuild it and make it float.

The sail and mast are in great shape. The guy we got it from had it in the back of this truck with the mast in place. As he back towards the dock he forgot about the tree branches overhead. This broke the two fiberglass halves apart. It was originally stapled together. We ground out all the old staples and have glue it together with fiberglass epoxy.

We are now looking for a few free days with nice weather to bondo, sand and paint it up. However it does sail as is. We took it out on the lake and got some looks from people appearing to say “you sure that is going to float?”.
