I picked up this old beauty about
6 months ago.

No fin.
Many dings.
Delams on deck from knee paddling.
And some genius has tried to reshape the nose.
It could be 6" shorter than original.
Some homework needed here.

The last owner was toying with having it restored.
The cost, due the amount of work needed put him off.
 He asked if I was interested in buying it.
So I did with no intention of restoring it.
The more I looked at it, the more I thought 
it may be worth doing.
It has a nice rocker and outline.
It has been said that the best of these 
old logs have been surfed into oblivion.
Maybe this one, is one that has survived. 

The foil looks promising.
