The AJ Meerwald’s restoration is nearly complete! We are hoping on a launch date of June 24, 2022 in Belfast Maine. After that will be the uprigging and stability tests. Follow us on Facebook for more details about the restoration.

Our potential sailing dates are still uncertain. Call 856-785-2060 or email giving@bayshorecenter.org with any questions.
