I've sanded a few boat hulls, but usually there's paint afterwards.  This ship may not need a whole lot of fixing up if they can be careful removing the sand!

Sculpture buried at cemetery:  “Whether you like it or not, it’s art. You don’t destroy art.”

A mobile controversy from the beginning, Triumph of Civic Virtue now rests in a logical and emotional location for dead ideas.

The argument:

The result:
“Civic Virtue” may end up amid graves, but that is not a concession to those who, over the years, have wanted it figuratively dead.
