56′ Nevins sloop
WB No. 188
BEING RESTORED


For reasons that we find hard to understand, this classic nearly came to grief after she changed hands due to her appearance in “Save a Classic.” She was within days of being cut up and salvaged for hardware and ballast keel when, responding to Craigslist and Matt Murphy’s editorial in WB No. 218, Peter Gallant took the plunge, acquired POLLY, and moved her inside Steve Carpenter’s shop in Rye, New Hampshire, where restoration has commenced.
