I was lucky to have had the use many years back, for a couple of seasons, of a 1903 Herreshoff Bar Harbor 31 (47' OA). She has had her ups and downs as far as maintenance goes, but she is still sailing today. She was fortunate to later have a wealthy owner who completely rebuilt her (including, but definitely not limited to, replacing 70+ frames, some of which I'm sorry to admit I'm sure that I was responsible for breaking. Ledge at 7 kts in a race). She is now owned by a local boatyard that has the skills and facilities to keep her up very nicely.
