Hello folks, I own a 1939 S&S sloop "Weekender" built in South Boston by Lawley and son.

We just completed a 8 year restoration on her and photos can be found at MYC Yacht Club web site.

Have owned the boat since 1977 and did a rebuild way back in 1980's from waterline down ,however never realized bilge stringers were detached from hull so had to tackle that as well as replace about 7 feet of fore foot and stem, 90% of floors ,keel bolts from galvanize, 20% frames with accompanied blocks, replaced entire horn timber ,built new rudder.

In the most recent restoration, New plywood deck w? dynel and West over , New bulwarks , new cabin trunk sides, new cockpit seats and sole , new stainless brackets in bilge area with new stainless keel bolts and many many more items too much to mention.

Thanks for the opportunity for joining fellow souls in this most rewarding endeavor.

I also cannot locate the pictures you mentioned.

A link would be much appreciated.

I am looking at one identical to yours that I want to purchase to restore and wondered what value you believe yours has now that it is restored and what kind of money you had to invest.

How much information is there available...I assume that everything must be custom reproduced?

Hi Wayne,

Could you please let us have the link to those photos of "Windsong".

I couldn’t find them and I’d love to see her.

Well done for persevering with her restoration, and thank you for telling us about it.
