    Default Schooner... needs a bit of work

    This photo was taken in Florida, not sure where, other than on the East coast, probably south of Miami. Does anyone recognize this derelict schooner, and maybe know anything about her? (No, I'm not looking for another boat project... just curious.

    Picture isn't showing. Perhaps it's marked as private?

    It's the Malabar, ex Rachel and Ebenezer, built 1975 in Bath ME. at the Long Reach shipyard north Bath Iron Works. It's ferro cement and sailed out of Greenport, NY by Dan and Sue Hallock for many years.

    Tugs at the heart.

    Yes.....but the tugs on the wallet are sure to be much stronger.
    I once thought I was wrong, but I was wrong, I wasn't wrong.

    Sorry to dredge up an old post (pun intended).

    The intervening 5 years have not been kind to the R&E, it seems...

    These ferro boats tend to explode at a point.
    She deserves a better end.
    First thing I thought of ,those spars would have sailed again if she had wrecked in a Carriacou hurricane .

    I probably saw her at some point, the name rings a bell.
    Traveling the ICW I've seen many tempting "rescue boats", especially after a hurricane puts them on the banks. But reality intrudes.
