I got to film this 1930's classic 42 foot motorboat underway after she was completely restored by Elizabeth Meyer and Mike McCaffrey of Narragansett Shipwrights in Newport, RI. BYSTANDER was built in 1929 as a tender to the large J Class yachts that raced for the Americas Cup in the 1930's. Her last tender assignment was in 1967 for Dame Pattie, a 12M. This short movie was filmed off Newport, RI. in June 2011 from my 25 foot rigid inflatable chase boat ONNEsignment under the able command of Jeff St.Aubin.
