Friendship Schooner Legacy
by Casey Harding
(Wells, Maine, USA)
I have just started her restoration, with a hope to have her back in the water by 2025 so I can take my dad for a sail.
He and my grandfather built her back in the 1970's when I was a small child and I have many fond memories of sailing on her off the southern coast of Maine.
There is a long road in front of me, but I can't imagine letting her sit and rot away any longer.
When it's done, it will be a boat that has had 3 generations put tools to her, and I hope some day to work on her with my son.
