Once again, host Bob McNeil joins with yacht restoration expert Jeff Rutherford to tackle a huge project with a colorful past, the 135 foot wooden schooner, quot;Coronet'. Built in 1885 for American industrialist Rufus T. Bush, during her first five years CORONET earned fame as a trans-Atlantic race winner and circumnavigated the globe as one of the first U.S.-registered yachts to round Cape Horn. Her design is credited with changing U.S. commercial ship standards forever. All the pieces are there, including a custom Steinway piano. With the help of young apprentices from the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, Rhode Island, Bob and Jeff set off on a restoration journey that will take them from the jungles of Guatemala to the forests of Denmark. When completed, she will sail as she originally did: without an auxiliary engine, a living tribute to American expertise and craftsmanship.
