This is the full-rigged ship FRIENDSHIP OF SALEM under repair by Dion's Yacht Yard of Salem at her berth at the Salem Maritime National Historic Site in Salem, MA. She is a replica of FRIENDSHIP, which was built for Jerathmiel Peirce and Aaron Waite by Enos Briggs at Salem in 1797. Her dimensions are: length, 171 feet; beam, 27 feet; draft, 11 feet 3 inches; 342 gross tons; and has a sail area of 9,409 square feet. She made 15 voyages around the world trading in local products and returning with much needed goods. During the War of 1812 she was captured by the British. The replica was constructed by Scarano Shipyard of Albany, NY in 1996/1998. She was rigged by the National Park Service, the Naval Historical Center Detachment in Boston, and Dion's Yacht Yard. She does sail to some local events, but otherwise she is open to the public year-around. The repairs being made are to the starboard side amidships and around both sides of the stern. This is a cold moulded hull so making repairs are not to diffi cult.

Work port on portside stern as they begin to replace the layers. A Murray Peterson designed 41 foot 2


inch schooner, built by Clinton Hanger of Washington in 1981, is in for work. She will have repairs made on her hull, which will in- clude fl oors, frames and planking as needed. As for the fl oors, they will be changed from steel to stainless steel. They will also work on the reverse gear, change wheel, and then do paint and varnish. A 1928 34-foot Malabar schooner, built by Lawley of South Boston, will be coming in for hull work. This will include frames, fl oors, and planking as needed. A 39 foot Concordia will also receive new coamings this year.


Another busy aspect of the yard is the


paint shop. They have three Awlgrip jobs to do, which will include a 40 foot Pearson, a Southport 30, and a Boston Whaler.


With all the work they do on wooden boats the woodworking shop has become too small. This coming spring this will be enlarged giving them double the space.
