New York artist Bill Benson blew us away with his beautiful work. We looked him up on his website, wmbenson.com, and his artwork is just as fabulous as the work he’s done on this sailboat. Bill tells us that this 36′ wooden sloop arrived in his yard in November of 2007, and that all of this work on this sailboat was done by turning his back deck into a portable workshop! For the past six summers, he’s moved all his power tools out there to work on large pieces of the boat, whose major changes included entirely replacing not only the cabin walls, but the interior and cockpit areas as well. After so much time spent on her, Bill says he knows this sailboat inside and out, and he should hopefully have her in the water by this summer.
