You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

That was my first guess above. I understand that the Dark Harbors are being still being built in wood and glass. My sense is that you could probably buy a reatively new one for a hundred thousand or so. There are three wooden ones from the mid-1930's for sale for $20-25000 and there is a used glass one for $88,000 listed on Yachtworld. Go Knock yourself out.

There is a restored "R class" for sale at the Center for Wooden Boats (Lake Union, Seattle, Washington). Just gorgeous.

The lighthouse that co-starred with the sailboat and Brad Pitt was the Tchefuncte River Lighthouse at Madisonville, LA. The lighthouse is undergoing restoration and is expected to open to visitors through the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Maritime Museum next year. The crew and cast (including Pitt) that filmed those scenes worked out of the museum.

I don't think it's a Dark Harbour. I found some pic's online of Dark Harbour 20's and they don't look like the 'Button Up'.
Back on page 2 of the thread, there's a screenshot of Pitt back by the transom, shot from behind the boat. The transom there has 3 or 4 cutouts that don't appear on any of the boats yet mentioned. Could this be used as an identifying feature?
