We are proud to introduce this Friendship Sloop, Selkie, to you. Friendship sloops are named after their original build and cruising grounds, Friendship, Maine. The design for Selkie, was taken directly from Howard Chappelle’s’ original design, kept at the Smithsonian Institution. In the trues sense of “form following function”, the renown Friendship sloop’s form was developed from functional need. Her stern is designed to accommodate a low work platform, in order to allow lobstermen to ply their trade in as safe manner as possible in the turbulent waters of the North Eastern United States. The hull form is designed for speed, and her sail plan is designed so that the lobsterman can “let go” of her sheets and control lines while leaving her sails up when stopping to tend traps and lines. In this mode, the Frienship sloop instantly changes from a highly efficient and fast sailing vessel, to a large and stable work platform, now steadied by her sails. Her fixed, full keel was designed after a catastrophic hurricane took out many of the centerboard models of fishing vessels, in 1888. Clearly; the need for a safer work platform was answered with the full fixed keel of these Friendship Sloops. Her tear drop underwater shape, and transition to her beautiful wine glass transom was designed for speed.  An additional benefit of this shape resulted in her wide and stable work area, aft. Creature comforts forward allowed lobstermen and fishermen to stay warm and dry, with bunks,  wood burning stoves, and the means to have a hearty and warm meal simmering during hard days at sea. These Friendship sloops appeal to those who seek to keep traditional designs with us, and have a tremendous and fiercely loyal following of enthusiasts. Additionally, this design also coincidentally is perfect for modern day recreational mariners. Her inside creature comforts are appreciated today, and the Friendships application for a modern day day sailer and camper is amazingly efficient and comfortable. Her stability in a myriad of sea conditions, make her ideal for family outings, and her speed make her a joy in after work regattas. Her immense load carrying ability comes in handy today for entertaining friends and family in your adventures. Selkie, in particular, was built from the highest quality materials, and no shortcuts were taken in her construction. Even the notoriously tricky transom was faithfully and masterfully constructed. Details like her bronze fitments (note her sculling mount aft), bronze port lights, wood burning stove and Sitka Spruce spars are evidentiary testimony to her quality which stands ready for future generations to enjoy.   She was built by Jim Lyons, of Port Townsend, Washington. She has teak leak-free decks, a hull of Western Red Cedar on White Oak ribs, with guards and worm shoe of iron bark. Her beautiful interior is very beautiful and functional as well. A warm environment is crafted of teak, Yellow Cedar, as well as Eastern Aromatic Cedar. The one deviation from the original design is her standing rigging. Originally, these vessels had a free standing mast, much like a Catboat’s mast. Stainless wire rigging was added to this particular little ship for increased structural integrity in heavy weather and waters. In keeping with her aesthetics, her wires were wrapped and traditionally affixed. High cost and labo
