Mystic Seaport, Mystic, CT

I have photographed this sailboat many times this summer.  In fact it has been the subject of a couple of posts in this blog.  I think one image was in black and white, and the other featured a nice reflection.  Recently I was reading Mystic Seaport's Fall Magazine and came across a small article about his particular sailboat.  It was designed by N.G. Herreshoff and built in 1926.  It is the subject of it's own book, where it is described as being the finest shallow-draft yawl built by Herreshoff.  She had four owners and was recently restored and donated to Mystic Seaport.  Apparently she is a pleasure to sail.

  1. I've always known this boat was beautiful and special, but had no idea it was so famous. It has great lines. Always enjoy seeing it, so don't hesitate to keep photographing it and posting the pictures.
