Owned by Mary Howe DeWolf Shepherd of Bristol, RI. It has plywood fore and aft decks that are canvas covered. It was bought to replace Rhode Island Red (Hull # 1117, built in 1929), which was lost in the 1938 Hurricane. She was damaged in the 1960 hurricane, and the wreck was bought and restored by Jack Tiplady. Eventually, she was re-purchased by Mary Howe DeWolfe, her original owner and is still in the DeWolfe family. George W. Zachorne, Jr. started working on her in 1990.
