Gaff Mainsail For Sale

This sail was built for the Bob Prothero-designed and -built 65' Schooner "Alcyone" of Port Townsend. A mismeasurement on the throat-to-clew diagonal dropped the boom to the boom crutch!

The sail is beautiful as you can see from the pictures. All traditional in its finishing: hand sewn boltropes, rat tails, hand sewn rings, cringles, etc. It sets beautifully but is just a bit too long for their boat.

The sail is built out of 10.46 oz. Contender Low Aspect Dacron cloth: a high quality, premium cloth. 2 Reefs, 4 Battens. Has hand sewn eyelets for lacing along Luff and Foot.

Farewell Lane Briggs

It is with deep regret we announce the passing of Lane Briggs today, September 19, 2005 in Norfolk Virginia, cheerful and always thinking of others to the last, after having fought a long bout with cancer. Lane will be deeply missed, but always remembered in the many ways he has added to our lives and schooners. There will be an Irish wake at 1:00 PM on Saturday, September 24th at Rebel Marine, 1553 Bayville Street in Norfolk. Additional details may also be available from Kathryn Laube (laube01@earthlink.net).

Al Roper has indicated a Foundation for Lane is in the offing for charitable donation to causes Lane actively supported during his life.

Lane, may you always have fair winds and following seas, for you have not departed from us, having only passed over a horizon ahead of us, on a course we too shall follow.
