This lovely classic cruising sloop, then named “Heron”, was purchased by Mr. & Mrs. Haertel who realized she had some obvious (and some not so obvious) problems which required professional attention. Since “Heron” was to be transformed back into better than new condition, at the completion of the project it was the owners’ wish to change her current name back to her original name “Menina”.
