The Schooner J&B I

The J&B is a Fisherman's schooner, gaff-rigged with eight sails. She was built in historic Trinity in 1985 by master builder Henry Vokey, who named the vessel after his daughters Jane, Josephine, Bonnie, and Bernice. The J&B is fully refurbished with modern conveniences and upgraded to Canadian Coast Guard standards. In 1994 she was sold to Capt. Robert Jenkins and operated as a tour boat out of St. John's until 2001. She is now rumoured to be privately owned at a new home port in Florida.
