On Monday, August 24, Lake Champlain Maritime Museum’s schooner Lois McClure left her home port on a very important mission – getting ship-shape in anticipation of her twelfth year of operation. Her destination was the New York State Canal Corporation shipyard at Waterford, New York, where a team of shipwrights working with David Short of North Atlantic Shipbuilding and Repair, of West Montville, ME are now working to replace any worn, damaged or rotted planking and timbers and recaulk seams.

“We’re especially grateful to the McClure family and to the many donors, volunteers, and friends of the schooner who made her first decade so successful, and whose enlightened support provides for the maintenance essential to her continued operation,” said Michael Smiles, Executive Director of the Maritime Museum.

“Schooner Lois McClure has been the most effective outreach program LCMM has ever conducted, and a leader in the world of Maritime Museums. The schooner will be in highly qualified hands for this essential maintenance work, and we are already looking forward to her 2016 season.”
