Greg Jones. Herreshoff Manufacturing Company in Bristol, Rhode Island, produced the most technically advanced, popular, and prominent boats of their day. Today, Herreshoff boats are recognized as the most historically significant boats of their time, and command some of the highest prices. Herreshoff Sailboats covers some of the major classes of Herreshoff boats including schooners, yawls, ketches, sloops, Q, R-, nad J- class yachts, and lanches. The story begins with John and Charles Herreshoff who founded the boatyard in 1832. The sale of Herreshoff to the Haeffner Corp. in the 1920s is also profiled. The epilogue explains the company's decision not to build fiberglass boats, and close its doors. Vintage black and whilte photos will tell the story, and modern color photography will show Herreshoff's role in yachting today.

About the author (2004)

Greg Jones is a graduate in Biotechnology from Cardiff University, and has recently completed a PhD in Molecular Microbiology at Swansea University. His specialist areas include bioinformatics and genetic manipulation of microorganisms. He is currently working in Campden BRI s microbiology department as a Senior Research Officer for the Preservation, Processing and Spoilage group. This group uses microbiological tests to determine the safe shelf life of foods, and is also increasingly involved in using predictive models to predict the growth of microbes in foods. Greg is currently investigating the potential for the extension of shelf life through superchilling products, as well as a novel culture-independent method of microbial community analysis.
