There is a wonderful project underway at the Northwest School of Wooden Boat Building in Washington state to restore the Felicity Ann, a wooden boat that was sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in 1952 by Ann Davison who did the first female solo crossing.
The boat has several homes since then and it was acquired by the Northwest School and is being restored by a team of female boat builders. The whole story is on their web site http://felicityann.com/. Take a minute and look this over as it looks like an interesting project.
I sure wish I lived in Port Hadlock, Washington!
