Cleaning Up The Sailboat & Getting Her Back In The Water After 8 Years [VIDEO]

Quite a while ago, I parked my 1981 AMF Sunbird Sailboat at the cabin.  I couldn't store it indoors, so I did my best to tarp it.  I've been meaning to find time to get it in the water over the years, but this year I've made it a priority.  I was a little worried to see what kind of shape it would be in after unveiling the tarp.
