Just a quick to update you on the status of Pocahontas. She is now Heaven Up h'isted and has been returned to her native New England. Her new owners, John Van Norden and wife Megan Burgess are from Hartford and purchased Pocahontas in July just before Deltaville Maritme Museum suffered a tragic fire. Heaven was carefully shipped over land to Chatham MA to the Pease Boatyard and is now under the care of Mike and Brad Pease. A search is ongoing for her design plans at Mystic Seaport Museum and she is slated for a full restoration this winter, with a launch back into the Atlantic next June. She is safe and sound, in need of a little TLC but has owners dedicated to putting her back into the form she was in when she was launched 65 years ago. We will keep you apprised with photos and updates as her restoration progresses. L. John Van Norden
