107 yr. old sailboat in Florence Alabama

I am involved in an historical research of a Herreshoff built and designed Bar Harbor 30. This boat is 50 LOA. and was built in 1903. She was last seen in Florence Alabama. I have 2 possible addresses. 37 Danley St which , I believe, is the same as 37 County Rd. And another address of 3926 County Rd 94. If anyone out there could just drive by and see if the boat is there it would be greatly appreciated. If seen you can PM me or just reply. Thanks

Took a look on Googlemaps steeet view, and 50' boats at that address are pretty sparse. There are some lakes nearby, but I would think 50' is a lot of boat to keep in the backyard. Good luck!

I have already done that but it was inconclusive. One address had a large metal barn and the other was hidden by trees but could make out what could be a big boat under a tarp.

Any info can also be sent to The Herreshoff Registry and click on Zara.

You've called the marinas down there already? Someone should have seen or heard of something that out of the ordinary.

I have checked every marina, boat yard, chandlery, hardware store, lumberyard in the county. This boat is KNOWN to be out of the water undergoing restoration since at least 2002, and located in Florence Al.
