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.
"For the reader interested in small boats, from any point of view - the historian's or the boat builder - Barry Thomas has a definate place on the book shelf." - WoodenBoat
