This mixed media work was created in 1996. Regarding the Friendship Rose Schooner “40 years” says captain Lewis, “40 years sailing. Took 3 years and 4 men to build her. Built strong she is. Searched Bequia's tallest hills to find the right trees. Still strong she is, after 40 years of work. She was the Bequia - St Vincent ferry, the mail boat, a trading schooner when sail powered boats as they did before diesel". `````````````````````
