    ARIEL 100 RESTORATION

    Here are a few photos of an Ariel being restored in Alameda, CA. Rumor has it that the owner has a $30k budget

    We are attempting to learn the owner's name and find out more about the boat. The boat was purchased from a donation program, allegedly just before it was to be crushed! We begin at the bow . . .

    Mast base. Obviously, he did not have access to the manual's appendix to get the proper pad shape

    The interior, however, still appears to need some work

    Those are photos from a couple of weeks ago. Plan another visit to the yard to check on progress and leave some Ariel literature. The yard will not give me any information on the owner, so I hope to run into him on one of my visits.

    Wow...30K, huh? I'm flattered someone loves these boats as much as I do
    Nice arcs on the traveller and genoa tracks. Can't wait for more.
