Cena : Before and After
Cena's current owner, Scott Macdonald, took her on in 2016 and very kindly sent in the above “Before” photograph as he set about a major restoration project. So often, initial enthusiasm wanes as the true magnitude of the task becomes apparent. Not with Scott, however. Now, five years on, he's been in touch again, this time with the inspirational news that Cena is a boat to be proud of, sailing well and attracting admiring glances. He's also sent in the “After” photograph, presented below; she's a “looker” !
