« Last post by Shaible on April 20, 2018, 08:11:47 AM »
Need a rudder for 1948 Quincy built 12-1/2, in mahogany.  Before I build one I thought I'd see if anyone has one they're willing to part with.  Have cash, will travel.

Herreshoff Boats For Sale / 1916 Fish Class Sloop for Sale

Launched in the spring of 1916 by Herreshoff Manufacturing Company of Bristol, RI, SEA ROBIN (originally named SARDINE) is HMCo #807.  She is one of only 20 boats in the original 1916 Seawanhaka fleet only 9 of which are extant and can be traced back to their original hull number.  This is a rare opportunity indeed!

The Fish Class is and enlarged version of the ubiquitous Herreshoff 12 , with the same virtues of stability, rough water ability, good looks, and excellent handling characteristics. While she is only 4 longer than the 12 , she has twice the displacement and thus, in real terms, is twice as big.

The cuddy cabin allows for storage space and privacy for use of a head.  She has a custom galley, custom bunks and tent for camp cruising which she has done regularly, traveling to Martha's Vineyard, Cuttyhunk and the other Elizabeth islands and around Narragansett Bay.  She is generally a fine, handy, compact boat that will keep the sailing fun even when conditions are less than optimum. She will sail fast at moderate angles of heel, and like her smaller cousins features a large, deep cockpit, (holding up to eight adults), that will be reassuring for folks of all ages and will be particularly good for couples with small children.

SEA ROBIN is marconi rigged, was completely rebuilt and restored in the 1980s by Ed McClave and Ben Philbrick, (now MPG), and will be sailing this summer.  Engine/Fuel Type: Yamaha 2 hp. outboard engine. Located Little Compton, RI.

Whatever / auxiliary power
« Last post by Tom P on February 15, 2018, 05:10:25 PM »
Hi, Does anyone have suggestions for auxiliary power. I have a nice side motor mount but can't afford a Torqeedo. Are there any other battery powered motors that will work with a reasonable battery? I've never had a motor before and would like to avoid a gas outboard if possible.

Thanks, Tom

Through my own stupidity I have this morning aquired an Eagle...She is hammered with the Yanmar on the ground with the head off and lots of damaged teak and some of the spars bent...Generally trash but she is still beautiful!...I am a good carpenter and can handle the teak but I need to know if I shouid seek out another inboard and what one should I use, can I find an original motor, If not are there plans to build a motor well for an outboard?..Is there a plan to make her a Bermuda rig as I am in Bermuda, and could I use the original spar?..I would like a self tending rig as not only am I lazy I will soon be 75 years old and not getting any stronger... Dick Butz :-\
I also visited the museum a while back. Honestly, I was very pleasently surprised by the quality of the exhibits. Everything was well thought out and easy to follow too.
