    Re: Herreshoff "white"

    Arctic, Matterhorn, Snow, Mediterranean? Some historicist out there must have a deliberated and approved color of white.

    Herreshoff "white"

    Is there some consensus on what constitutes as "white" for topsides on a LFH Rozinante? Mine has either Brightsides or Easypoxy, each brand has 3-4 choices, but none seem to match what is there now.

    Re: Varnishing over vinyl applied lettering?

    Very good guys. Thank you!
    I'd thought about painting the short name on this go-round myself. The metal letters could work well and may not be too many pennies with such a short name.
