Re: Sailing on a 1920's Alden Schooner

When I was a kid we had a '29 Alden Schooner built by Gamage in ME. We sailed her primarily fom Newport and from Bimini to Boothe Bay. With all sails flying 10 knots was not uncommon. I kinda remember her beam was quite narrow for a 53' boat. Dad loved to call for the "Gollywobbler" . Then he would yell, let it all hang out!

Sunfish just fine
Dyer Dow, crushed in Hurricane Sandy
Angler 204 Cuddy-, Crushed in Hurricane Sandy
Yes all true, No wonder no one will go on the water with me.
