40′ Green/Doucette Novi BoatWB No. 206WITH NEW OWNERS
Just as we were putting the final touches on this article, we found out that BONNY BRIDE had been donated to Jon Johanson’s International Maritime Library. Jon will continue searching for a new owner, one who will surely appreciate that she’s planked with cedar imported from Maine instead of Nova Scotia pine, and is better built than most. She has room to spare in both the cockpit and cabin—and is in decent structural condition. Perhaps it won’t be too long until we see BONNY BRIDE afloat again.
In September 2012, we heard that Walt Ansel, shipwright at Mystic Seaport, instructor at WoodenBoat School, and occasional author for WoodenBoat, bought BONNY BRIDE. He plans to take her to his father's place in Arrowsic for the winter, then home to Mystic.
