Last of the Mohegans (for now)

photoUNCAS named for the last sachem of the Mohegan tribe is a N. G. Herreshoff designed Buzzards Bay 18 and is the first one to be built since 1904!  There were 5 boats built originally during the winter of 1903/1904 and construction details are scant.  The wizards of wood at Artisan Boat Works in Rockport, Maine built UNCAS for her new owners in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  This photo of her transom, taken at the Maine Boat Builders Show by C. F. Horton Sr., exemplifies captain Nat’s genius and Artisan Boat Works’ flawless execution.  Bravo.
