Schooner Days CCLXVIII (268)

Tait's Types: Round Sterned Delaware, Gun-Barrel Picton, and her Hickory Jibboom, 28 Nov 1936

In this installment, the author gives John "Jack" Tait of Picton as the builder of the schooner Picton in 1867. The Picton Registry has "Builder’s Name & Date of Certification: Thom. Walters, June 1867", bit it is highly likely that Tait would have been involved.
