'I have a 26’ sail boat I’ve started to restore but am unable to continue with the restoration so I’d like to offer her to someone who is interested in taking over.  She is strip planked Huon pine fixed lead keel built by Barry D Wilson of Smithton. Her original name is Norma De Kermandee (we call her “Valkyrie” now).  She is in a cradle at my home at Deep bay.  I have stripped her back to the hull and have done some re-ribbing, and reset the transom.  I have attached some pictures of what she looked like when we bought her and after repainting the hull about 8 years ago and what she looks like now after being stripped back. Please let me know if you know anyone who would be interested or if anyone wants to come and have a look.  My Phone number is 0476 935972 and email esjy@optusnet.com.au'.
