Seeking Herreshoff Meadowlarks
Hi everyone,I''m trying to compile a list of Herreshoff Meadowlarks and their location.
The Meadowlark was L.F. Herreshoff''s design #88 and was penned in the late 40''s. His design goal was to create a cruising length sailboat with the least possible draft for sailing the waters of Florida and the Bahamas.
Over the years, the Meadowlark was produced in many different versions, home-built and manufactured, and in many different materials, wood, fiberglass, steel and ferro cement.
The Meadowlark''s original design was 33'' and was to be constructed in wood plank or plywood. The wooden version was featured Rudder and Wooden Boat Magazine. A 37'' fiberglass version in was manufactured per order in Massachusetts in the 70''s and early 80''s.
If your a Meadowlark owner, or know of one, and you would like to help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or post a reply here.
