Seaweed was rebuilt several years ago by George Emery of Tenants Harbor Boat Yard. During the rebuild, George was floored to find out that his grandfather, James Jackson, was the original owner. George hopes he gets the first right of refusal when the current owner decides to sell. The Makinsí sail her in Maplejuice Cove in Thomaston, Maine during the summer.
