Thanks - I've heard of them before although never dealt with them. We're not far from there, in Buck's Harbor on Penobscot Bay. Was actually th Brooklyn Boat yard that got her hooked on the 12.5. They do a week's sailing program that they conduct in the 12.5's The wood is beautiful, but not sure she has the appetite for the maintenance...it does raise the question of how much additional maintenance one can expect from the wood as opposed to the glass. With all the bright work on the higher end glass versions - she'll still have a decent maintenance bill I would imagine.

The folks at Cape Cod Shipbuilding are very very nice, the owners are family friends, I keep my boat in their yard over the winter.

This of course says nothing about the merits of one particular Herreshoff build versus another, but they are very nice people to do business with at Cape Cod Shipbuilding.

If you're at Buck's Harbor, they may race Bullseyes, I know they race Ensigns. There are a lot of 12-1/2's and Bullseyes up and down the coast from where you are. You shouldn't have any problem finding one in a back yard that needs a new owner.

Lois at Buck's Harbor Marine may be able to give you some guidance, as could anyone at the BH yacht club, Castine YC, or Kollegewidgewock Yacht Club (Blue Hill) . I'd check in Southwest/Northeast Harbor as well.

Haven't heard of any Bullseyes racing at Buck's Harbor Yacht Club (and I did ask around the club looking for a 12.5 already with no luck). You are right that they do have a very active Ensign fleet (I actually tried to get her to take over my Ensign as I'm thinking of upgrading) Good idea to check Castine, Blue Hill and Buck's Harbor marine as well though - thanks.
