Pinky Schooner Maine
Based on a half-model in the Boothbay Region Historical Society collections, these plans were drawn by Samuel F. Manning of Camden. The half-model is believed to represent a pinky schooner built in 1832 by Capt. Levi Reed at East Boothbay.
The sail plan is based on Fig. I (p. 39) in The American Fishing Schooners by Howard I. Chapelle. These drawings were made in the early 1980s, and used by Maine Maritime Museum boatbuilders in the construction of the pinky schooner Maine, which was completed in 1986.
Changes were made during the several years it took to build Maine, and it is possible that the drawings listed here do not perfectly represent the vessel as built.
