Pete Culler Schooner Gallant

This boat used to live near me on the Sassafras River. Rick Carrion knew the former owner. I'll pass your inquiry on.

Gallant

Dear Greg,
I now own Gallant. She is presently on the hard in Friendship,Maine awaiting her newly constructed pole barn so some maintenance and restoration work can be done. It is interesting that you said she lived in the Sassafras river? I would like to contact anyone with information on her.
Regards,

Greenport

I believe that Gallant used to sail day trips out of Greenport Long Island N.Y. for quite a few years under the ownership of Capt. Dan Hallock.

Gallant

Hi Bill,
You are correct in that Gallant sailed out of Greenport, NY on day trips when Dan owned her. I purchased her from Dan and sailed her to Portland Maine.

Gallant News

This came in via email. Wonder where she's headed?

To whom it may concern:

I saw the schooner, "Gallant" being transported overland out of Portsmouth, ME last Friday. It was heading north.

All the best,

HI Ed,
Someone did see Gallant going up the road from Portland Maine to Friendship Maine to her new temporary home, where some needed work is to be done. I would have sailed her to Rockland,& then trucked to Friendship, but winter was here, and it was a time factor to get her safely to Friendship.

Hello Don,
What are your plans with Gallant ? I tried to buy her when she was in NY/NJ.I'd love to see her again.

Hi Keith,
Gallant is on the hard in Friendship Maine where she awaits for her new boat shed to be built, hopefully, before the first snowfall of this year (2011). She is in need of some cosmetic work, etc. I would be happy to talk to you about her any time. Either e-mail me at anchorcrane@maine.rr.com or telephone me at 603-387-1294 cell days only. There is always time to talk, and touch the parts of a lovely wooden schooner.
Regards, Don D. Zappone
