Topics: boats & diving

With their graceful lines and rugged seaworthiness, Friendship Sloops were the boat of choice for lobster fisherman off the rugged coast of Maine in the late nineteenth century. Though motor powered craft replaced these beautiful boats there are still many in existence and sailed primarily as yachts. Host Marianne Eaton spent a day on Lake Champlain aboard a Friendship Sloop from the Whistling Man Schooner Company in Burlington and learned some of the basics of sailing.
