Louis Sauzedde of Tips from a Shipwright is at it again, restoring another classic Herreshoff 12.5 (here are some videos from his last Herreshoff 12.5 restoration).

In this first episode, Louis appraises REMORA, a 12.5 that has been owned by the same family since she was built in 1928. It’s enlightening to see how this pro approaches the project and evaluates what needs to be done to restore a classic.

In the next installment, Lou shares with us his tricks for creating pattern for the new stem.
