Touting the museum’s “upside potential” and ability to be a “showpiece” for Bristol, Rhode Island, new Executive Director Bill Lynn took the helm of the Herreshoff Marine Museum earlier this month, according to an article on EastBayRI.com.

Lynn plans to change the look of the building to make it more of a showpiece. Plans include building a glass atrium in the front of the museum building that would house the Reliance model, a one-sixth replica of the original largest Americas Cup yacht, built in 1902 at Herreshoff.
