Arthur Lyman  Tar Baby 

Tarbaby, #1047, built for Arthur Lyman and is now owned by the husband of Lymanís grand-daughter (who was a Simmons). The boat is in bad shape, and they have resisted attempts by people to buy and restore her. However, they donated her to the Cohasset Yacht Club on 2003. The boat was then given to Alfred Slanetz, owner of the NY30 Cara Mia, under the proviso that he restore her. Alfred will be giving the job to MPG.
