This boat has not been sailed much in the past few years, and is in need of restoration. It is stored on the waterfront in Cataumet, MA. It is owned by a consortium of 4 children of the second owner, Frederick Eustis. Cindy Longstaff is the daughter of one of these owners and is the unofficial caretaker of the boat for her family. She believes her grandfather got it from Bardenís. It has always been named Manatee.
