Many of our readers will remember Capt. Rob's schooner, Windfall. In the spring of this year the boat was dismantled, and Rob purchased another schooner, the Windfall II (this is the boat we took to the Great Chesapeake Schooner Race last week).

Recently our good friend and craftsman, Jim Goodwin, made a couple of models of the Windfall that are constructed from portions of the original vessel, and mounted them in bottles. Village Craftsmen is now offering them for sale. The models are in very limited supply, and we do not know if we will be getting any more. If you would like more information, or would like to place an order, please click on the link below. Please keep in mind that only those models designated as having "wood from the schooner" were contructed from the Windfall.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter is an article, with a number of photos, documenting the history of water cisterns on Ocracoke Island. Click on the following link to go directly there:
