Jarvis Newman’s nostalgia got the better of him, and he couldn’t resist this one. Years ago, OLD BALDY had served as the plug for Newman’s fiberglass Pemaquids, and in semi-retirement he decided to go back to wood and refurbish OLD BALDY himself in his one-man Southwest Harbor, Maine, shop. It was a great coming-together both for Jarvis and for the boat. Unlike MASHNEE and FAME, which are many years older, this boat didn’t require a thorough restoration, just a general upgrade.
