SILENT SILENT MAID MAID
Flipping back and forth, they are not twin sisters, yet sisters they be. And with the same name yet. This will be an item of confusion. The 1924 version is in the shop. She seems much longer to me, and could be as her sheer is flattened a great deal. There have been splices to lengthen her toerails. Her cabin is similar has the galley and head in the same places, yet has a much different feel than her new sister MAID. One reason is the liberal use of cream pain and bright cabin ceiling in the new boat, another is the use of warm red cushions rather than the cooler green duck.
Movie of new MAID sailing at Newport.
