Lasting Friendships, A Century of Friendship Sloops.

Lasting Friendships is in two parts, a history of the Friendship sloop covering more than one hundred years, and a catalog of existing sloops with short write-up and individual histories. The foreword for the book is by marine historian and writer Maynard Bray. He is technical editor for WoodenBoat magazine, and known most recently as one of the founders of Off Center Harbor.
