Default Asked to help with sailboat

In the morning I'm to appraise a 32 ft for wood restoration and other items to be found needing work.
Not new territory, but will require it to be parked at the farm for the work.
Good for neighborhood gossip.
Life is good for the old guy.

32 foot wood sail boat !

That is a lot of wood.
With fancy bends.
How many masts?
Design drawings?

Have you done this before?
It doesn't sound like a week end project.

I can see a few upgrades on this restoration:

Jeff probably has a couple R985s laying around...
