1957 Herreshoff Cape Cod Marlin
« on: May 27, 2018, 10:14:12 AM »
I recently acquired this 1957 Cape Cod Marlin. This is the Cruiser model with self bailing cockpit. The boat was in MA. I am only the third owner and have kept the original name “Unda Maris” (French for “Wave of the Sea”).  I had her shipped to Florida in January. The boat was sound, but had really bad cosmetics.  I spent 3 months refurbishing her. I am very pleased with her performance and handling. She is surprisingly fast in a moderate breeze and well balanced. I get many compliments. The part of owning this boat I enjoy the most is the view from the dinghy as I go ashore after a sail.
