The film of Huff's build in 1951
This project would be far poorer without the historical evidence Eisca uncovered in the form of a rare 8mm film of Huff's original build in Arklow in 1951. The film was shot by her first owner, Mr.Douglas Heard. Eisca is indebted to his widow, Mrs.Ruth Heard, who preserved and passed the film over to the charity. This precious archive footage has provided Eisca with the details needed to replicate the accuracy of the design's original specifications.
As part of the legacy of the HLF project, Classic Yacht TV was commissioned to produce a film of the restoration which includes the original archive footage from 1951.
