Wondering.... wouldn't it be less expensive/ faster to build a brand new 12 Meter than to restore that old girl?   

Fantastic job, either way.  

That's what they did.

You will be able to find a couple of scraps of wood from the "old girl" in that new boat restoration and maybe the keel got recycled but otherwise, all new boat.

They just wasted a bunch of money dragging that carcass from Pitt Lake to Germany so they could pretend that they restored it.

IMO, anyone who puts the required amount of time, effort and cash into that project can paint the finished product any colour/finish they want.

P.S.    ….. Don’t forget to take the bacon out of the packet.

80 years ago the owners manual for your car told you how to adjust the valves.  My 2020 car manual tells me that I shouldn't drink the fluid in the battery.

Agreed- anybody with the good taste -and- the cash to make this happen should be considered a benefactor of mankind
