The Original Silent Maid
The original Silent Maid is a perfect museum piece with all of her history intact for anyone to see. To rebuild her would be to destroy her. It is not likely a single piece of her would remain because she is fastened with iron nails. Once they rust into the wood the only cure is to replace everything. This is what prompted the decision to build a new boat. We will attend to her cosmetics and provide her with a cradle to support her through the years. Out on the Barnegat a new Silent Maid will shoulder her way through the chop, keeping both of their histories alive.
