46′ Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 30WB No. 179RESTORED
New owner Jan Rozendaal and builder George Darling teamed up to thoroughly restore MASHNEE. They did this in Vermont at the same time as French & Webb were restoring three other boats of this 1902 class in Belfast, Maine (see WB Nos. 203 and 204). All four were completed and launched in 2008, with MASHNEE having a Doug Hylan–designed marconi rig and a different interior layout. What a grand sight to see these four beauties on the Eggemoggin Reach Regatta courses! MASHNEE’s home is on Lake Champlain, but luckily for us seacoasters, Jan and George brought her east for some saltwater racing that first year.
