"[Might this model be the model for the 'cheap yawl boats to be shipped to South America'?] This exploit [of leading for a while during the 1865 the New York Yacht Club Annual Regatta] brought John [B. Herreshoff] and [Dexter] Stone to the limelight, and in the year (1865), they built [#186501es] HAIDEE I, a number of small catboats and fishing boats, besides a large number of cheap yawl boats to be shipped to South America."
