    Have you tried Richard Stanley, over in Bass Harbor? You might also try over at the NEH fleet, or out at SHYC; they might know something. Most of the 12s that were there when I grew up there were marconi, though.

    H12 = Herreshoff 12-1/2, in local parlance.
    MDI = Mount Desert Island, Maine.

    My recollection is they are dainty little things, not hard to break, and that original ones in usable condition are most likely to be attached to a boat.

    You might try contacting the Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle. They had an H12 in very very poor condition a few years ago.
