Each was for money received from renowned shipbuilder for their share of profit from the voyage(s) of the named schooner. The fractions owned are 1/64th to 1/16th of the ship. A fascinating look at the fruits of ownership of the schooners that Dunn & Elliot built & outfitted in the era of the "Tall Ships." From 1748-1921 Thomaston, Maine was "the town that went sea." Between those years around 670 vessels were built. Dunn & Elliot was one of the premier "square rigged" vessel builders from 1860 to 1921. They built every part of their ships including the sails, in a "sail loft" taken over by D&E in 1864 and continued until the five-masted schooner "Edna Hoyt" was launched in 1920. The last square-rigged vessel built on the east coast was a barkentine "Reine Marie Stewart" was built during WWI by Dunn and Elliot. Expected age toning & handling wear; none are brittle.
