Building the Herreshoff Dinghy

The name Herreshoff is synonymous with classic yacht design, including small boats like this one.  Here former Mystic Seaport boatbuilder, Barry Thomas, describes how he applied a Herreshoff Manufacturing Company employees experience to the construction of a replica 11 1/2 foot Herreshoff sailing dinghy.  Now in its seventh printing, this very popular book is a "how to" guide and an appreciation of traditional boatbuilding skills.
