Herreshoff Boats For Sale / Neglected HA18 Wanted
« Last post by brokenotbroken on December 13, 2018, 02:23:25 PM »
I'm looking for a neglected HA18 that my two young boys and I can work on together. I thought I had one lined up, but it appears to have been sold before I could get to it. Anyway, I'm not looking for a handout, but I can't afford a pristine one either. If you have one that is sitting around, needs work, and you would like to see back on the water or out of your yard, please contact me. I live in the Florida Panhandle but I'm willing to travel to pick up.

Thanks Charles, I looked there but they don't have minimum bridge clearance listed.  I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I even looked through the old sales brochure. It looks like I'm going to have to find someone with an HA18 and measure it myself.  Unfortunately, they are not very common down here in the Florida Panhandle. -david

Sailboat data.com tends to be a useful source for basic model data.  The Herreshoff America is here:

https://sailboatdata.com/sailboat/herreshoff-america

It does not include clearance information. 

Does anyone have this data to help?

Can anyone tell me the height from the waterline to the top of the mast when the gaff isn't raised for a HA-18? I have a low clearance bridge I would like to make it under without lowering the entire mast and am wondering if the HA18 would fit if I simply lowered the gaff. Thanks!

Herreshoff Boats For Sale / Re: NY 40 in Hawaii

Hi Rob,

The boat is for sale on yacht world and has been for about two years. 

The hull is sound, having been rebuilt by Eric Ashford of Port Townsend.  Eric does solid work.  I recall the planks may be edge-glued rather than caulked.  If you look closely at the photo posted on the Forum in October the hull is fairly smooth.  I knew Eric in the 90's and would run into him from time to time in the 2000's.  Neither the owner nor restorer were/are permanent residents and so the work on the Wizard would start and stop. 

The major challenge may be transporting the vessel from Hawaii to the mainland.  This challenge can be overcome. 

Having sailed on the vessel in 1999 or 2000, I can answer some questions as well as put interested parties in touch with the owner's representative.  Wizard's owner also has two significant Alden's in the 50-65' range LOD and would like to place the Wizard in the hands of someone to finish the restoration as he downsizes his fleet. 

PM me or feel free to ask more questions on this thread.

Indeed!

Just noticed the script / font on this little tray actually says  "SY Queen Mab".   SY...?    Steam Yacht?

Being a reference to a fairy in Shakespeare play, there have been many Queen Mabs. 

The Herreshoff built schooner was two masted.

Hi Laurie,
I just picked up on this trail - It's been a long time on the system - while investigating the Queen Mab.  All because of a little tray that has been kicking around in our family for a while...  I have photos - attached.

Who knows if they belong to "your" Queen Mab, or the three mast behemoth that went before!

Do you recognise the tray?

Incidentally, I know that the Queen Mab that used to race with the WASP was built on the Clyde in Scotland in 1892, and registered as the Queen Mab, a Cutter!

Kind regards,

Robin
