Just getting back from 2 weeks in France. Travelled the battlefields of Normandy on this 69th year of Remembrance. Now that I'm back, have to get over some jet lag and check on the Dory as the seasonal leaves and rain are providing lots of clean up for me on the hard at the yacht club. More to follow!
Just out on the Cruising World website, a link here to the Paine 14 a new build based upon the Herreschoff 12 1/2 design no longer in production of course. See the link here: http://www.cruisingworld.com/sailboats/new-classic-ready-for-production
In terms of keel boat designs Herreschoff''s model was a classic design, like his fellow-designer, Alberg for the Cape Dory. Both little boats have similarly unique hull designs and provide day-sailors with great functionality and maneuverability. To be viewed.
