|International Yacht Restoration School (IYRS)|
The vessel is owned by the Coronet Restoration Partners in San Francisco but being restored at IRYS.
|The Coronet Project: The oak for the ribs, keel and planking comes from the Royal Danish Forest, as it is the right scale and grows at the right angle.|
|She has been awarded a place on the National Register of Historic Places, a first in Rhode Island.|
|We had the pleasure of seeing Jeff Rutherford of Rutherford's Boatshop, who is in charge of the restoration.|
|Jeff generously shared so much interesting restoration information including some of the original ship building techniques.|
It was great to be back, and it is well worth some attention.
