Fans bundle up for classic boat show

In addition to many private entries, the Apalachicola Maritime Museum brought the L. Francis Herreshoff-designed 58-foot wooden ketch, Heritage, which took the ribbon for Best in Show among large sailing vessels. The museum also brought two classic wooden steam-powered vessels, and a group of model skiffs which were constructed by the students of Project Impact, an after-school program run through the city of Apalachicola.
