Red cedar stripped on oak frames, everything else was teak. Now I have a 55 foot alloy monster.
Still my beating heart! That true boat porn. Beautiful vessel.

I'm sitting in the airport in Dallas. When I get home I'm gonna run down to the dock and go sail. These pix are just provocative!

Well there is obviously a bunch of us out there with Herreshoff's so I think a Herreshoff's owners site should be established (I haven't been able to find one). I'll get a url and keep everyone informed of its progress.

Do you want a Halsey Herreshoff, Nathanial Herreshoff, L. Francis Herreshoff designed boat owner's site? Three different designers with different ideas in the same owner's site?

Re: Herreshoff yachts? Anyone got one?

I don't see why not. It can have different sections for the individual designers and the boats they became famous for. Of Course three different sites could be started although that seems unnecessary and I don't feel there are enough of any one given design out there to start specific sites for each specific designs (in my case a Neriea).
