This is my personal (retirement) boat. I built her in the winter of ‘06 from wood I have had for 25 years. She is a 21 1/2’ Friendship sloop designed by Jay R Benford. The hull is cold molded Red Cedar and the other species used include Yellow Cedar, Douglas Fir,Teak, Mahogany, Locust, Purpleheart, and Sitka Spruce for the spars. Her name is “Friendship” in honor of Friendship, Maine where this design type originated about 100 years ago.
