Artison Boatworks - Restoration CandidateThis sweet little 20' Friendship Sloop was built in 1962 by Nathaniel D. Clapp from an original Charles Morse half model. She's currently in the water and sailing, but her iron fastened backbone needs some work. The engine has been removed but could easily be replaced, there are a few bunks down below, a small Wilcox head, and space for installing a little wood or coal stove.

After Carmichael's death in 2006, the house was donated back to Amagansett for historical preservation. To...Read more
