Schooner Governor Stone

Vessel asail On the first major sortie after her over $100,000 restoration, which included 4000+ volunteer hours over 8 months (see Features at right*), the Governor Stone lost a prop blade.  Severe vibration damaged the stern post and the adjoining timber.  A judicious grounding and twenty four hour monitoring prevented her from sinking (her fourth time.) Repairs required a master boatbuilder, so she went to Bill Holland Boatyard in Mississippi.  The Friends are exhausted; the coffers are bare.  But we are determined to continue to maintain this historic vessel.  Nothing stops the FOGS!!
Total cost of this incident -Broken prop $16,534
