Launch of Vintage Motor Sailing Yacht Trade Wind

I was hired to photograph the restoration of Trade Wind at Rockport Marine. Three years later, it was launch day for Trade Wind on May 18. The 62′ Alden Motor-Sailer was originally built in 1938. These photos were taken by me and Jane, my assistant. (It’s nice having extra cameras on the job!) After a few more photo shoots on the water this summer, Jane and I will be designing a coffee table book for the owners as well as a multimedia piece. We’ll share the results when we wrap up the projects.
