Marblehead Chronicled on Boston's Channel 5


Of Marblehead, Walter Cronkite wrote:
It is no wonder that this picturesque and lively port has become a favorite of the international yachting fraternity and the principal sailing center of the Boston area.  With three major yacht clubs on its shores, it is also one of the most crowded harbors on the east coast, and, when the wind goes around to the northeast, one of the roughest.
Watch Boston's Channel 5's segment on Marblehead, Massachusetts, featuring F.L. Wood's owner Wayne George:
Marblehead, beautiful and unique, is home to not only F.L. Woods, but Patsy Kane, Tory's Jewelry and, of course, Ribcraft.

    1. I've heard that you cousins to the north call it the Marblehead Race, while we call it the Halifax Race :)

  3. Marblehead's harbor and Neck are likely the inspiration for the town of Paradise in Robert B. Parker's 'Jesse Stone' mystery series.

  4. Marbleheaders were famous mariners in the war. They ferried Washington across the Delaware.

    1. And saved the Continental Army, and thus the United States, by ferrying the army across the river from Brooklyn Heights through a fog to Manhattan.

  7. Thrilled to be in such good company! If you looked very closely at the Chronicle episode, you could see that we are lucky enough to be front and center in fabulous F.L. Woods! And, as an aside, I'm the happy owner of one of Tory's gorgeous sterling Turk's Head bracelets.
