Desk model

The model you carefully built is beautiful and I love having it. Clearly, you spent a lot of time building this wonderful model, which arrived yesterday. I spent this morning carefully unpacking it and now have it sitting on my dining room table. It is a masterpiece and I'm proud to own it.

    Historical Note:

    The Herreshoffs of Bristol, RI, America's legendary family of yacht designers and builders, led the way from America's Cup Winners to everyday pleasure craft early in this century.

    The magic of the 12 1/2 lies not only in her good qualities, but in the beauty of her shape. Handsome from all angles, the shape of the bow is of particular interest. From a wide deck line, the forward sections curve inward quickly to form a waterline with considerable hollow, and continue below water with a trace of reverse curve at the garboard plank.

    This kind of boat, gracefully designed by Nathanael Green Herreshoff , for use on Buzzards Bay, has been enjoyed by thousands of sailors since its first introduction in1914. ... And the legend is still going on...
