The Sloop, Sora
This little yacht arrived at the Creque Marine Railway for cleaning and painting in 1942.
She was a pretty sailboat believed to be from New York. Her bottom was painted green with a white waterline, blue topsides, and she had a mahogany cabin on top.
During the summer month of June, she was spotted by the US Coast Guard ship, Unalga heading to Puerto Rico.
From there, she made a side trip to visit the Dominican Republic then to St. Thomas where she had her hull scraped and cleaned.
Below is a faded invoice from her short visit, found in the family’s archives.
