Welcome to the internet home of Contradanza, a Vivacity 20 currently undergoing an extensive rebuild and restoration in Aberdeen, Scotland.  I hope to develop this site to document my progress with the boat, to help me control the project, and for the interest of others that might be inspired to try something similar.

Progress is thick and fast at the moment, with a target launch date set for mid September 2013!  Well, you have to have a deadline, otherwise it would take forever!

Please have a good look around the site, and as the project is now underway there will be updates regularly in the project log section.

Please note: for some reason the link that takes you directly to the update is not working, but they are there so you will just have to scroll down for now until fixed!  Sorry!
