    Herreshoff Harbor Pilot http://brettsaunders.com/LOLA/ According to NADA guides, Squadron Power Boats , Woodstock GA made a model called the Herreshoff Harbor Pilot, 18 foot with diesel power. According to the USCG manufacturers list they are Out of Business in 2016. Of course the one in the ad I linked was supposedly made by Nowak and Williams. Confusing? According the Coast Guard list there is no Nowak and Williams building boats. But there was a Nowak and Williams in Bristol RI, building sailboats to Herreshoff designs, in the 70's. Maybe what happened is Squadron boat the rights to the designs.

    The previous owner said it has a sail to help stabilize it. I’m supposed to get that and some other accessories that’s in his garage.
    I’m looking forward to getting her all cleaned up. She’s been neglected for a few years. She has a good home now.

    Thanks again for all the information.
    I really appreciate it.
