Herreshoff S-Boat Project

Bristol, RI

A complete reconstruction of a 90-year-old Herreshoff S-Boat. The boat is Hull Number 3 of the 98 wooden sailing craft built by Herreshoff from 1919 to 1941, and was recently purchased by a Rhode Island Herreshoff aficionado.

Shea and his crew of Bruce Cresser and Bradford Gove have their work cut out for them, as the boat is in pretty rough shape, having passed through several owners and several partial restorations over the years. Every piece of wood and hardware will be replaced, save for the ballast keel, but first the team needs to correct the damage caused by previous restoration work and improper layup, which twisted the hull out of alignment and caused the bottom to sag.
