Just yesterday a friend gave me an opened but untouched LW Friendship sloop kit. I'm delighted. The plans and directions aren't pretty and your well photographed work will be a big help. Thanks.


I'm retired now and have the time to devote It's been years since I've done planking but I'll pick it up again.


Now the kicker - I live in Bath, Maine and did business with them in the early-mid Eighties.

Glad to hear! Is it the big one or the small one?


Have you visited the Sail Power & Steam Museum in Rockland? They're finishing up a strip-planked Friendship started in the 60's and have recently been donated the Sloop Blackjack, built in the early 1900's (1910 I believe).


Another good reference are the Howard Chapelle drawings of the Friendship Sloop Pemaquid in his book American Small Sailing Craft.


If you have any questions or need help, please drop me a line.
