Shane,

They called me up, I think because you can find me pretty quick in Marblehead by calling the phone companies information line, and told me they would like to give you a free sail. This was after you posted the painting of Fritha. I'm disorganized, so I did not pass the word on right away.

Here is thier flier, I am cutting and pasting it into here, if you PM me your email address I will send it to you. Don't put the email address on the forum a spam bot will find it and you will be getting emails about certain enhancements until long after your dead. I pulled their email address out for the same reason

Relive the great days of sail as you and your family or friends become the crew of Fritha, a 74’ (L.O.A.) brigantine rigged Murray Peterson designed vessel. Named for the heroine in the Paul Gallico book The Snow Goose, Fritha can accommodate up to six new ‘crew’ to join her USCG captain, mate, and cook on each new voyage as she sails the New England waters in search of unique ports of call and anchorages along the fabled northeast coast.



Rigged in the traditional “tall ship” manner with block and tackle, halyards, square sails, and bronze fittings, Fritha will take you on a sailing voyage you will recall fondly for the rest of your life.
