Phippsburg Hampton:  1870s Sailing Lobster Boat       launched 1981

Alexs boat 15

1870's Phippsburg Hampton:  The Maine Lobster boat before the engine and the Friendship sloop. An exceptionally comfortable, able and fast sailing craft.  I thought the sail in front (main or fore depending on who you're talking to at the time)  acted a lot like today's genoa jib.  It's easy to see where the modern built down lobster boat hull came from.
