    In Finland has the Coguina been rebuild from original drawings.

    Take a look at (unfortunately in finnish):
    http://www.puuvene.net/Lehti/2001-1/Coquina.html

    It is said that the drawings were "donated" to M.I.T. Haffenreffer-Herreshoff Collection where Kurt Hasselbach was the intendent. He helped to get the drawings and all other information for the project.

    What about the Herreshoff Museum.
    Buy the book "Capt. Nat Herreshoff" if you haven't!

    Good Luck with your search!
