Amorita - Herreshoff NY 30 restored after disastrous collision

Amorita

Amorita - the legendary Herreshoff New York 30 was overrun and sunk by the much larger Sumurun in 2007.  there is no explanation for the accident other than recklessness by the helmsman and skipper of Sumurun.  Amazingly the boat has been rebuilt.  See Billy Black's dramatic photos of the accident.  Check out the film - Amorita - an undying love.  And read the story of her restoration.
