A lot has changed since this video was produced back at the dawn of the classic yacht renaissance some 30 years ago. Since then, many more deserving old yachts have been restored to ever-higher standards and are sailing once again. The required boatbuilding skills, thought then to be dying, have flourished as well.

Unfortunately, Full Sea’s work on IBIS didn’t endure, and she’s awaiting another and more complete restoration at Boothbay Harbor Shipyard—the same yard that restored IBIS’s sister, ALERA, just in time for the 2005 New York-30 centennial race, hosted by the New York Yacht Club at Newport, Rhode Island. ALERA now belongs to Claas van der Linde and has played a starring role in OCH videos.
