I have a 1966 Hereshoff 28 modified staysail ketch, wooden hull, double planked, longitudinal over diagonal, bronze fastened. Anyone out there have one of these? Any thoughts on the advantages/disadvantages of this construction? I don't know what or if anything was sandwiched between the inner and outer hulls.

According to GOB magazine, Far East Yachts (Japan) ceased construction of wooden boats in 1968.

Re: Owners of Far East Yacht Builders, Inc

GM,
Thanks for the speedy reply. I think I might have a rare survivor although the hull is No. 82. Good Old Boat didn't mention FEYB's production of the Hereshoff design. I new about the other sites but haven't posted with any of them yet. I'll do that. See if any of the other members here weigh in on the construction method.
