How to tell how old your boat is

Post by Art Haberland »

After all this time I finally got Spark's sails out of their bag. Of course they were made in England and in surprisingly good shape considering the last time she sailed was in 1981. They were even clean. I will have to send them off to a loft this winter to get them looked over and if deemed good to go, have some reef points put in.

When I saw her telltales though, I damn near fell over laughing.
