yacht,DORIS Restoration Project
Photography & Design Samples
Languishing in a boat yard in New London CT for 30 years, DORIS, the largest all-wood sailing vessel built by Herreshoff Manufacturing Co in 1905, was scheduled to be scrapped at the end of August 2013. Given a one-year lease on life by the generous collaboration of a good friend and Snediker Yacht Restoration of Pawcatuck, a search for a new owner was spearheaded. Now, thanks to an enthusiastic client, DORIS has been saved.
The complete restoration of DORIS will be the largest ever undertaken by Snediker Yacht Restoration. I was hired to follow and document the progress as she’s returned to her original specifications. This comprehensive media project includes video, photography and graphic design, in addition to the creation and maintenance of a dedicated website www.doris1905.com
