HARVEY GAMAGE Restored at Portland Yacht Services

HARVEY GAMAGE Restored at Portland Yacht Services

At one time almost every harbor on the coast of Maine was filled with schooners. Some were used for fishing, others for the coastal trades, and some even went deep-water sailing to parts all over the world. Following World War I, the number of schooners decreased dramatically. Today there are no schooners sailing commercially as they have been replaced by the tractor trailers. The only remaining survivors of that era can be seen at Bar Harbor, Camden, Rockland and Portland. It has been a long time since one underwent a major refit, but that is what happened to HARVEY GAMAGE at Portland Yacht Service in Portland for the past 14 months.
