    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    The Rat approves - although he does prefer a stays'l rig, and this may be just a little big for his taste.

    I could either pay off the mortgage, or buy half a suit of sails for that thing.

    I'll bet that is at Muscle Ridge Channel, Lower Penobscot Bay, Maine, judging by the amount of lobster pot buoys everywhere!
    Very handsome boat, that. (Belongs "upstairs", though!)

    Could be Eggemoggan Reach, too. With Harbor Island in the background.

    Great, now I have to turn around on the highway to Hell and see about getting my job back.

    Or Squirrel Island in Booth Bay. Or pretty much anywhere on the Maine coast...

    @ Norm - that boat can live in a slip - it just has to be a fairly big one.

    She is a beauty.

    Are you sure you're not one of the worthless ones born after 1968?

    Eileen, crazy John was owner/captain. I am below in this video. She was hit by a cruise ship, and John spent the next decade tied up at slipway changing one Fastner at a time, and keeping every sliver he could of the original. Ran out of the and sold her on. Probly the most original Fife left.

    You are right Gareth, if we told some of the stories, they would not believe us...

    Setting aside the cost of the boat and considering only maintenance, it would be amusing to compute the cost per hour to sail that lovely schooner.

    Am I getting my Eileen's mixed up. There was Eileen and Eilean. The McCallum book says "Eileen an 85' ketch built for Luis Fulton of Greenock, in 1928", and there's another mention of the same boat in 1937.

    You would have to ask the Italians, memory a bit fuzzy from those years...
