I don't know where she is, but I personally believe that Halsey's Alerion is quite possibly one of the prettiest boats ever designed.

I read somewhere that many boats were designed based Alerion 111 I could be mistaken on which models but I believe it was called the Fish Class 12.5, 21' Fish, Buzzard bay 14, Buzzards Bay 25 and possibly the S boat.
