originally built, Friendship Maine. This one in particular can be traced
back to a Wilbur Morse design of the 1890's.
It was Maine's original Lobster Boat, before the popularity of marine engines as a main source of propulsion.
There is no better way to see and experience this Historic Harbor then from the water aboard a Friendship Sloop.
This is Nautical Chart of the Inner as well as

How it Works
Sail Boat is Chartered from the Moorings. Captain
Chris selected the Moorings since all Sail Boats are less than 5 years
old. A New Sail Boat adds to the enjoyment of the Charter by reducing
the risk of equipment malfunction.

Minimum of 5 days
Payment made to The Moorings for the Sail Boat
