Schooner SILVER HEELS

SILVER HEELS was featured on the first cover of WoodenBoat Magazine, then called THE WOODENBOAT.   A Peterson-designed, clipper-bowed, coaster-type schooner yacht, she was built by Malcolm Brewer in Camden, Maine, 1963.

  1. Thank you for ALL your great pictures. Sail boats and the sea shore are especially appreciated.
    Some of your pictures of birds are incredible.
    Do you still use the same camera you mentioned a few years ago?
    THANKS - Jim

  2. What a beautiful vessel! Were I in the market for a sailing craft, something like it would be just the ticket.

    Best Regards,

    Very happy to see these pictures as Murray Peterson was a close friend and neighbor in South Bristol, Maine.

  7. Beautiful boat! I live in the Colorado Rockies now but will always miss Salt Water New England and treasure my time there. If the doc ever tells me to move to a lower elevation, it's certainly on my short list of places to return.

  11. Very appropriate breed on board. We should all not forget Charles Darwin's five year voyage of discovery aboard the HMS Beagle!
