Schooner Dirigo II - New Owners

Sadly, in January 2010, I had to sell Dirigo II, but she has found a good home.  Capt. Art Lohrey and family (San Juan Classic Day Sailing) further restored her and now sail her out of Friday harbor, Washington.  Some of the missing info under her name in the ASA Schooners database is as follows:

Owner: Arthur Lohrey/San Juan Classic Daysailing

Builder:  Goudy & Stevens Shipyard, East Boothbay, Maine, launched 1939, commissioned 1946

Previous Names:  none

LOD:60.5'  LOA:74.3'  LWL:45'  Beam:15.7'  Draft:  9' SA:~2500 sq. ft. with the fisherman

Rig:  2-masted, gaff-rigged schooner (with topmasts)

Plank/Hull:  single-planked, carvel, 2" fir & mahogany over oak, teak deck

Fastenings:  Hull: Everdur bronze, Deck: same (refit with bronze in progress, originally iron ship nails)

Power:  single Yanmar 4-cyl, 75-hp T/C diesel

She is listed with Northwest Windjammers.  Not known if the new owners belong to ASA, but I've recommended they join.
