The Hudson River Historic Boat Restoration and Sailing Society, hopes to restores the 108-year-old Sloop Eleanor, which has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1982. Putting the boat back in the Hudson River for locals and tourists might be one outcome of these just-beginning efforts. Casson Kennedy, a ship restorer from Martha's Vineyard and WGXC volunteer, and Louise Bliss, whose father, the late Philip Egan, acquired Eleanor in 1951, are behind the efforts.
