Finback Love!

Finback Love!

The Mahi fleet is near and dear to us, especially Finback, the first vessel we ran out of Salem Willows, before we relocated to Pickering Wharf.
 
Here's a little about Finback, for those who are curious:
The Finback is a U.S Coast Guard Inspected, 50-foot-long vessel. Originally the Finback was built as a scalloping boat in 1978 by Malcolm Melville Boat Works out of Maryland.

Finback Restoration Project 2018

Our boat building extraordinaire Andrew Regan has spent the winter working on the third year of the Finback Restoration Project. This winter he fixed part of the keel, replaced the horn timber and built a brand new transom!  The keel was replaced with a 2,000 pound white oak tree trunk and the new transom is being planked with a beautiful mahogany. After this winter more than half of the Finback has been replaced and we couldn't be more excited to get her wet next month! 

Finback Makes Her Way to Pickering Wharf

Just in time for Memorial Day weekend we're happy to welcome our beloved Finback back to her summer slip at Pickering Wharf. Captain Will and Andrew have been working hard all winter and though they are sad to say goodbye to the tent and the boat yard, they are thrilled to show off all their hard work and get back to cruising on the Salem Sound.
