"NY40 MARILEE: Restoration of a Herreshoff Classic" Film Premier
Last weekend at IYRS in Newport, RI, we premiered the film, "NY40 MARILEE: Restoration of a Herreshoff Classic". A huge THANK YOU to everyone who was in attendance! Special thanks to (pictured L-R in group photo) Dennis Gunderson; Todd French of French and Webb; Kurt Hasselbach of the Hart Nautical Collections at the MIT Museum; Paul W. Waring of Stephens Waring Yacht Design; Evelyn Ansel of the Herreshoff Marine Museum/America's Cup Hall of Fame and the MIT Museum; film editor Pedr Seymour; and Bill Lynn, president/executive director of the Herreshoff Marine Museum and president of the Classic Yacht Owner's Association. Their involvement in this film - both on screen and behind the scenes - was instrumental in its success. I look forward to sharing the film at more venues this summer, and details will be announced soon! Photo credits: Jane Kurko.
