Schooner Mary Day Turns 50 and Gets a New Eagle

The schooner Mary Day, based in Camden, Maine, celebrated 50 years of windjamming on Sunday. The owners gave the boat a “present”: a new transom eagle, lovingly carved by Don Dodd of South Blue Hill, Maine, and gilded by Capt. Jen Martin and her crew. The crew poses here with the eagle on the day of her unveiling. She’s been christened “Belle” after John Haley Bellamy, a wood carver from Kittery who made many “Bellamy eagles.” For more photos, see
