The FRIENDSHIP SLOOP - icon of the 19th century workman's transportation and fishing craft.
Friendship Sloop Blackjack, Oldest surviving original Morse built sloop gets a major rebuild. Join our wonderful team of volunteers that work on this icon of the Maine Coast and learn the old way of boat construction, working in wood as the masters did it! Just drop in on Tuesday or Thursday, ask for Jim, and look us over!!!!!!
Over 3 years, our fantastic volunteers have built a 28 foot Friendship called "Persistence" & have learned boat building under the watchful eye of our Master Builder. She is now sailing the bay, hauling lobster traps and delighting visitors to the Coast of Maine
_Watch our volunteers steam and bend the house sides of our little sloop "Persistence"
