Check out this YouTube video of the first sail of the H-20, built using designs from 1928.
Bristol has long been known for its boat-building — and as this YouTube video shows, the craft can include both modern and historic touches. Bristol Boat Company posted this video in December, 2011, of the first sail for the Herreshoff 20, a new boat built according to plans drafted in 1928 by Capt. Nathanael Herreshoff.
