The Regina M rocks quietly, under a New England summer sky, on small ripping waves at the harbor at Mystic Seaport, Connecticut.
She was built c. 1909 as a carry-away sloop, also known as a ‘sardine carrier’. These were ships used to collect herring from nets in both the Passamaquoddy Bay and the Bay of Fundy and haul them to canneries onshore.
Originally built as a sloop, in 1909 the Regina M was fitted with a seven-horsepower Fairbanks engine to help propel her through the choppy waters of Passamaquoddy Bay. She has since been restored to her original configuration.
