"The Wren made her home along Chesapeake Bay and sailed in and around Annapolis and Kent Island. on the Severn River in Annapolis and frequently sailing past the U.S. Naval Academy and observing the activities of the Midshipmen. The Wren was aptly named as she was the companion on many bird-watching excursions sighting blue herons, bald eagles and ducks of all descriptions."


“I believe that the boat is in very good shape. All original, as best as I can tell. In one spot, the teak combing was used to attach a compass(?) which was removed at some point before I purchased it. There are some small screw holes as the evidence. No other signs of any damage or attachments. The hull is very good. No deep scratches or damage/repairs. It was been carefully maintained, cleaned, teak oiled, waxed, polished etc.  The following is included with the boat: Gold pinstripe and the name "Wren" on the topsides, mooring cover, set of oars, small anchor, assorted cushions, canoe paddle and trailer.  In late 2017, I replaced the trailer with a new Load Rite which has received minimal use, perhaps 3 times total in 2018 and 2019. Local streets only.”


“I have enjoyed sailing “Wren” very much, unfortunately, hip replacement surgery has limited my enjoyment in recent years so it’s time for someone else  to take her over and enjoy her as much as I have.”
