Title: From a wreck to a yacht
Post by: vwlucas on April 30, 2017, 07:20:32 PM
Hello everybody!

I bought, last month a wreck of a French pond yacht, a NOVA 70 cm, lest #9.
After a full restoration, I have restored to this “lord of the ponds” his original elegance.
Some pictures?

Before.

Hallo,



An old shirt 100% cotton, Belgian navy 1972  ;) . Small size, so unusable at my age.  :((
Impossible to iron, but excellent as sail!

Mahony, oak, beech, brass...
A other French Deffain (1935?) is waiting alongside.  :-)
