Maine Boatyard Completes Replica Herreshoff 12 1/2

Quote:
According to the newsletter of Maine Built Boats, Artisan Boatworks of Rockport, Maine, recently launched a Herreshoff 12 1/2 replica built to a set of original offsets discovered by Artisan owner Alec Brainerd. A year or so ago, while researching a different commission, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the original Herreshoff offsets for the 12 1/2. This is the list of measurements that absolutely and exactly define the hull shape with little or no opportunity for interpretation, Brainerd says.

IYRS in Newport probably has two or three of these available if you'd like one.
