My husband and I are looking for centerboard plans for an 18 1/2ft Herreshoff America Catboat. We are looking for help with either finding plans to build a new one, the size, shape and thickness of the steel needed and/or advice from anyone show has ever had to replace one. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Denise, Love your name! giggle.. I would suggest you contact the Mystic seaport Museum in CT, they are the source for herreshoff's plans and designs if memory serves me correctly. Also try the wooden boat forum.

The Herreshoff America was designed by Halsey C, Herreshoff and not by L. Francis. Halsey is still around and I found this contact info for him,

Halsey C Herreshoff Inc

Bristol, RI 02809

You should be able to get the info straight from the horse's mouth (so to speak).
