Little is known of her history until she was acquired in the 80s, her then owners putting their hearts and souls into the task, took her in hand completing the rebuild at the Wooden Boat Company, Camden, Maine in 1993 to bring her back to life. They were to reap the benefits of their endeavours in sailing her in the area of Penobscot Bay, moreover achieving some race successes at the Eggemoggen Reach Regatta – and as they put it “loving every minute of it”.
