Many of our readers have sailed with Capt. Rob Temple aboard his former schooner, Windfall. This past spring the Windfall was dismantled, and Rob purchased a replacement vessel, the Windfall II (this is the boat we took to the Great Chesapeake Bay Schooner Race last week).
Our good friend & craftsman, Jim Goodwin, has made a couple of special Windfall models that are mounted in bottles. They are constructed from portions of the original schooner, and are offered for sale at Village Craftsmen. There is a very limited supply of these models (and we have no idea if we will ever get more). If you would like more information about them, or if you would like to place an order, please click on the photo or the link below. If you are interested, please remember, they may not last long. Only those described as "wood from the schooner" are actually made from the original boat.
