I was going to ask about this design..but one search on google gave me all I wanted.. very sweet design.... she is lovely... great photos too.
The Watch Hill 15 is a 1922 variation of the 1898 E-Boat or more commonly known Buzzards Bay 15.

No wonder I like her, the BB series have always been one of my favorites.... I like Alerion and Pleasure and the BB 25 the most.

If you go to Watch Hill, there are really two classes now. The older ones (wooden hulled club footed jib and overhung boom) and the newer fiberglass hull, higher aspect rig with mylar sails, ilk. They sail pretty either way, but gosh the older ones seem handier to me!

Alec, when I saw your boat at the MBBS in March, I was thrilled. It's an A+ execution of a wonderful design, but what was even more important to me was that it's a design that had been done so well by our friend Dave Corcoran. Dave is gone, and the fact that someone else is doing an equally fine job on that boat makes me feel a little better.

Notice how well balanced she is! Hands off the tiller in many shots and sailing herself while skipper is on the bow. I wonder who did the rigging. Looks well set up.

Classic Herreshoff one-design (or two or three). Terrific pics, thanks for the link Alex.

My boatyard is rebuilding one that ended up on Barnegat Bay. Her's a pic of her current state:

Shape restored; she'll be just about all new when done. Quest has had a well used life and when Beaton's is done she be good for another 80 years or so.

More pics of her re-building progress see here (http://www.sjogin.com/) and here (http://www.flickr.com/photos/sjogin/). (Search for Quest or H-15).

Looks great! I'd post a few of our construction photo's, but can't seem to figure out how.
