Sailboat Archeology

Found this note on the back of a drawer: "Glued 5/73"

Curse of the mummy!

About a year before. Mom's funky 70's hat.

Lets see now, in 1973 I was attending school in Gstaad or had just moved to be with my Dad at Michigan State U.  Weird to think what a long and complicated series of events brought me and my boat together now!

The  plywood has dried up a bit but glue is holding up well considering the heat and humidity. 

In the elder days of art
Builders wrought with greatest care
Each minute and unseen part,
For the Gods are everywhere
 - Longfellow
