SCULPIN, an original 21’ Herreshoff Fish Class sloop that’s listed in the Herreshoff records as SQUID (hull #816), was delivered to the Seawanhaka Yacht Club in Oyster Bay, Long Island, for a Franklin Remington in April of 1916. Mr. Remington lived on the Driftwood estate on Centre Island and was an avid sailor/racer. He owned the boat (whose name he changed to SCULPIN while she was being built) until 1921 after which she switched hands several times. From 1932 to 1937 she was owned by John Foster Dulles (Secretary of State under Dwight D. Eisenhower) who sailed the boat out of Cold Spring Harbor until the next owner moved her to Southport, CT. Her history goes on, and includes time spent in Brooklin, ME, as WEST WIND, and a donation to Mystic Seaport. Her complete history is well documented, and a search of the New York Times archives results in many pages describing her successful early racing career.
Sculpin was completely rebuilt by Artisan Boatworks in 2015 and relaunched in 2016 for her 100th birthday. SCULPIN's complete history and thourough details of her restoration can be found in a paper written for the Classic Yacht Symposium which can be found on Artisan Boatworks website under "About Us", and then "Articles"
In 2020 a Torqeedo electric pod drive was installed with folding pronze propeller.
SCULPIN comes with a Triad trailer, is currently on a mooring in Nantucket, but will be transported back to Artisan Boatworks in August of this year.
