Restoration of a Herrshoff Eagle
« on: December 30, 2017, 01:22:43 PM »
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...
