George W. Wells
I've just published another Ocracoke Newsletter. This month I relate the story of the sinking of the six-masted schooner George W. Wells, one of the largest wooden sailing vessels ever built. The Wells wrecked on Ocracoke's beach in September of 1913 during a violent storm. You can read this fascinating story here: http://www.villagecraftsmen.com/news072110.htm.
