While MASHNEE was being restored in Vermont, this Buzzards Bay 30, appearing in WB. No. 187, was restored by French & Webb of Belfast, Maine, in 2008 along with two other sisters, YOUNG MISS and QUAKERESS II. See WB No. 203 for the full story of this spectacular restoration. Now named LADY M, this boat is available for purchase through French & Webb.
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!
