How Fife one-design Coralie got her sheer back

Before and after Coralie’s sheerline was restored

I was intrigued by these photos at the Classic Sailboats website showing how Coralie, a William Fife III designed Conway One Design got her sheer back during her restoration. The boat’s sheer had hogged and flattened over the years, due I’d guess to the effects of gravity, and so once her deck was off, the Classic Sailboats folks had a chance to get her back into shape. The effect of restoring her subtle sheerline is dramatic, as I’m sure you’ll agree.
