Laguna Windrose 22 MK1 Sailboat

I bought this little Laguna Windrose 22 sailboat on Craigslist last year and it has been setting in my RV Storage building. Now that it is springtime and I have time because of the Coronavirus pandemic I will start the restoration.

She needs a new paint job, the swing keel repainted and remounted. The deck is dry rotted under the step plate so it needs to be cut out, replaced and re-glassed.

Some brightwork is needed on the interior wood and the sliding kitchenette is missing altogether. Reconstruction of the sliding kitchenette will need to be done with a camping stove, cooler, and sink. I will also make a better folding table and give the V-birth a bulkhead divider for some privacy. She has all of her cushions and covers.

I have a depth finder that I am going to install along with a 7.5 HP Outboard motor for her but she needs a motor mount for the aft of the ship. The ship needs two winches as the sailboat did not have any when I bought her.

The trailer is in fairly good condition but I want to replace some wooden stanchions on it and give it a new paint job.

Other than that I think she is good. I will write more on her progress in the coming weeks.
