Restored Aussie scow

Brit Len Parker, knowing my weakness for all things scow related, sent along pictures of an Aussie scow Moth, vintage late 60's, that his buddy Ray restored over the winter.

From Len;

Thought you might like this. I've just spent 10 days on the Isle of Wight. While I was there , my sailing mate Ray & I got the wingless Imperium design scow Moth "Billabong" in the water. The first time she had been sailed in over 30 years !

Hi Rod!
I live in France and I just decided to repair the same boat,brought back from Vanuatu in 1982:) I'm a newbie at that stuff.I have to redo the varnish,repair some holes. Do you have any advice or technical links for this beautifull boat?

Thanks very much!
