Restoring The St-Laurent

St-Laurentst-laurent 1960

First the St-laurent which was given to me by my father in 1969 when I was 14 in exchange of a summer of landscaping around the house. The boat needed serious repairs and I did change ribs and keel box and a part of the deck. But in 1984, I did a complete rebuilt and this time all the boat was sealed in fiberglass and epoxy. The boat is now crystallize and do not rot. His life is preserved with little care needed.
