Daniel Fairchild???? - 7/1988Providence, RISigma 

George bought her as a wreck from Daniel Fairchild of Providence, RI on July 24, 1988. She is in storage at his farm in Charlestown, RI. He will be restoring her to museum condition, as she is # 16 of the first twenty boats built when the class was called The Buzzards Bay Boys Boat. Sigma's original name was Moro and he intends to put that name back on her transom. The original owner, George P. Gardiner, Jr. was from Boston.
