Shipyard in Maine : Percy & Small and the Great Schooners
Percy & Small set unrivaled records for wooden shipbuilding and ship management, launching 22 giant five- and six-masted schooners along with 16 four-masters in 2 decades. Percy & Small also had an unusual knack for making money as owners of a large fleet of schooners. Stories of their ships are told in wonderful detail, from the wooing of shareholders and launching festivities (with one schooner stuck on the ways) to deeply laden coal schooners struggling to stay off the lee shore, daring captains navigating treacherous shoals, and the perils of collisions, dismastings, fires, & submarines.
