Pining for the Fjords

Funny Girl, Dragør

Funny Girl, Dragør

I recently acquired this Manta 19 (1973, #205) in Dragør, just South of Copenhagen. Immediately taken with her beautiful lines and original retro orange gelcoat, I'm trying hard to ignore the facts that the centreboard needs to be replaced, the ballast keel renovated and all deck hardware rebedded ... and who knows what else. But she's worth it, isn't she?
