Flutterby

Herreshoff "Flutterby" Suicide class so named for it's large sail area
I did repair work on this boat pictured. To my knowledge there were only 3 boats
ever built. This is a dream project for me.


Help Me Rescue Flutterby


I would like to restore Flutterby to her original condition. I worked on her and
sailed her in the early 80ís. Now after thirty years I was contacted by the
museum that is now storing her. I am looking for financial contributions to
help restore Flutterby. These are the latest photo's of her. She has been in
storage for the last 10 years.


I can be reached at contact@acabinetmaker.com for more information.
