Thinking of warmer days like this one. Captain Nat poses with his daysailer PLEASURE (HMCo. #907) on the ways at his winter residence in Coconut Grove, FL sometime between 1925 and 1928. This was Captain Nat’s last single-hander, and he cruised in PLEASURE for a number of years when he was in his late 70s. Today, PLEASURE is part of the HMM collection and can be viewed on display in the Hall of Boats at the Herreshoff Marine Museum, thanks to the generosity of the Yaro family, her last private owners. 📸 anonymous, possibly Ann Roebuck; HMM archive#Herreshoff #HMCo #DaySailer #CruisingBoat #CampCruising #CoconutGroveFL #WinterCruising #OnTheWays ...
