Geerd Hendel was a very smart designer, who drew some very capable boats. And Malcolm Brewer was the best of the best, one of the finest master builders the Maine coast every produced. If the boat is in good shape, with that pedigree, jump on it.

His widow, or family, donated many of his designs to the Maine Maritime Museum, I believe.
