STEWARDSHIP is a lovely modified Herreshoff Buzzards Bay 14, built in 1980 by Seth Persson. Included are a 2hp outboard, set of 8.5 spruce oars, outboard bracket, sails and a custom trailer. The boat had its hull refastened two years ago and the bottom redone last year at Strouts point in South Freeport, Maine.
STEWARDSHIP features a varnished hull, molded sheer strakes, and a small bowsprit for the self-tacking roller-furling jib. Her mast is set up with a folding tabernackle for ease of raising and lowering, and it appears that she once had an electric inboard motor which has been removed, but could be re-installed with the prop in a centerline aperture.
This would be an ideal boat for day sails around the bay or lake. A timeless design yet of recent enough construction to require only routine maintenance.
