Sardine Carrier Grayling

Sardine Carrier Grayling

65-foot sardine carrier Grayling coming into Lubec. The vessel was owned by the R.J. Peacock Canning Co. of Lubec. She was built in 1915 by Frank Rice in East Boothbay as a purse seiner, with a 65 HP Standard gasoline engine. By 1925 she was hauling herring. WoodenBoat Magazine for May/June 1997 has an article on her history, while the March/April and May/June 1998 issues recount her reconstruction and conversion to a yacht by Doug Hylan.
