Saltwind / Delight Alden 275B
Aux Centerboard Schooner with Squaresail. Built in 1926 by Henry Stowman in NJ for an L.W. Fogg in North Hampton NH. She appears to be a stretched version of what was latter the 309.
All of her hardware is present, even spare bronze winches and oval shaped porthole screens! She is now at home in KY for rebuild.
Spoke to Ridge over at Robert E. White instuments, Boston, said this compass built by his grandfather's company, Kelvin White. I will have him refurb this fine old compass. The skylight tall binnacle is "John Bliss & Co" #1260, from the same era, 1925/26.
Update; a daughter of former owner, John Bruns Blouin, sent me several photos and stories of their happy days aboard Saltwind during the 1960's near New Orleans/ Gulf sailing.
