1929 John Alden Schooner 72'
This classic Alden Schooner had started its career with the Newport-Bermuda Race and completed two transpacific yacht races in the 80s and by 2014 her mastic stem was in need of a complete replacement. A major structural refit of the forward section of the boat inclusive of frames, floor timbers and planking, including the foremast chainplates, was completed in time for the 2015 Schooner Cup.
