VIDEO How to restore you a 1973 boat in eight minutes

mustang-22Passion for sailing in eight minutes. This is exuded by the video we show you, in which an enthusiast finds an old Mustang 22, a 1973 boat designed as a racing daysailer. He falls in love with the “clunker,” buys it for $600 and, with elbow grease, restores it to its former glory. The video documents the working stages up to launching and sailing.

The boat was designed by Martin Bludworth, a famous designer who was also an Olympic sailor in the 1960s. To date, there are about 40 examples around the States.
