I'd say Papoose and Squaw's restoration is complete with their performance in Antigua.  http://blog.herreshoffracing.com/ 

Great photos if you like racing in tropical blue waters with plenty of wind... ;)

You will find yacht photographer, Cory Silken's gallery of S Boats, Papoose and Squaw, sailing in the Antigua Classic here: http://silken.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/S-Class-Aquila-Papoose-and-Squaw/G0000gf3vb8mhVR0/I0000gUExCmoimI8/C0000JRWsammGQps

While Cory has the most extensive collection of S boat photographs anywhere, these are perhaps the most unique since they document the only S boat presence in the Caribbean. S boats have sailed many places, including Hawaii, but I believe this Caribbean presence is a first for the S boat.

Angus Davis is giving a presentation about the restoration of these 2 boats and their Antigua adventure at the Herreshoff Marine Museum on Thurs. May 30th, 7PM. It should be a worthy evening.
