This boat probably went to Marion, MA. The prior owner got the boat several years ago from someone in Boothbay Harbor. It is in excellent condition. It is oak with a marconi rig. He sails it in Belfast, Maine. Hull was refastened in 1981 and 1982, two rivets per frame, by Gordon Swift and Brian Foss (the original fastenings were left intact). Dark-green topsides with white boottop and decks. Stanley Pendleton is giving it a complete restoration
