I made a delivery today to the old Merrill-Stevens boat yard on the Miami River. This is what I saw. The original is in Cuba so I know this is a replica but this is stunning.
I know there is a nice replica in a tackle store in the keys but I don't think this is that one. A little search found this: Replica of Hemingway boat - Sun Sentinel
I bet this is the one made for the movie. Andy Garcia has a home in Miami and I bet he owns it now. I'll try to find out more about it tomorrow.
The other boat is the yards tug. It is a beautiful classic down east lobster boat. I don't know her history but she is old. I'm glad to see they are fixing her up. That white stuff hanging down from the hull is caulking cotton.
No fiberglass on either of these ladies.
