1930s Brainard Zip Sloop

Photos by Salt Water New England
Some days, the best thing to do is have a few people over, pull out the Brainard Zip Sloop, and donate it to a local private museum.

This sloop had been made in the town next door of native lumber in the 1930s and had been sitting in their barn for almost a half century.

  4. Good to see virtually everyone masked and gloved -- we can get back to work if we are smart about it.
