Lewis Francis Herreshoff (1890-1972) was the son of Nathanael Greene Herreshoff (1848–1938).
"Captain Nat" is one of the great marine designers that America ever had and in my opinion; Francis went the extra step to be the "Artist". He designed simplicity into practicality.
I not sure if you will get a response. But, you may try the links below for some information.
You may actually be able to e-mail Halsey Herreshoff for some information. There is/was a lady named Elizabeth Vaughn (Executrix of Francis' estate) and you may be able to find something here and there.
I wish I could tell more. I will say this;
When people talk of the number of designs Francis had. I laugh and say; "There were hundreds more, just they never made it out of Francis' head and onto paper".
I would love to see the plans of this Herreshoff-Creekmore. I am curious to see if it have a "Cedar Bucket". You can ask Halsey about the Bucket if you can.

44' Herreschoff Creekmore
I'm headed for Miami next week for the show and I'm planning on taking a look at this boat while in the area. Looks good on paper. Anyone know much about these boats?
I'm too new to post a link but it's the only one listed in Yachtworld. Seems a little under priced.
