    So, you have to be signed into Instagram to see much, and most of the pics have nothing to do with the America.
    No thanks.

    Looking forward to see more on this.
    I have started a new drawing of America and Titania at the £100 Cup off the Isle of Wight.

    I assume this is the replica built in 1967, at the Goudy & Steyens Shipyard in East Boothbay, Me., for Rudy Schaefer of the F. & M. Schaefer Brewing Company. A few years later it was sold to Presley Blake, who in 1975 donated it to the US Merchant Marine Academy at King's Point, NY. King's Point presumably kept the vessel for several years (due to tax considerations for donations) before selling it again. I remember hearing about the vessel when it was launched, and then the son of family friends was a mate on it.
