Waterline and new name

Between sailing the Sarah Mead and oystering, Captain Nate has found time to bolt the name onto Paula Anne's transom and re-establish the original black waterline. The black gives the white topsides a nice pop - and adding Paula's middle name (Anne) to her transom gives the boat a traditional new-england feel. It is a tradition amongst fishermen that their boat be named after a woman important in their lives, but not first and last name, rather first and middle. Anthony Noon originally named the boat simply: Paula.

"I told him to name it Paula Anne" Former owner / wife to Anthony Paula Noon told Captain Nate shortly after the sale.

Shipping the "Paula" to Maine will be no easy feat given the snowfall this winter, but the Jones' have put the job to bid! Working with a local farmer and his tractor and a LOT of shovels, we'll get her up here!

The 25' catboat Paula designed by Fenwick Williams, built by Anthony Noon is now Sail Muscongus' second vessel! After meeting the Noon family over a month ago, we closed on the sale of Paula just yesterday!

She currently sits in a field in Kensington, New Hampshire amidst 4' of snow. Our first priority is to get her up to Maine so we can begin her relaunching as the "Paula Anne." We will have updates as we get closer to spring!
