About The Margaret Todd
The Schooner "Margaret Todd" is a ship which sails out of Bar Harbor, Maine. We are collecting great images of her!
If you have taken pictures in Bar Harbor, chances are good that you have a shot of her.
The Margaret Todd is a four mast, red sailed, 151' schooner that offers a two hour sail from the Bar Harbor Inn pier around the islands in Frenchman's Bay. There are three windjammer cruises a day; morning, afternoon and sunset.
The Schooner Margaret Todd replaces her predecessor the Natalie Todd, which sailed from Bar Harbor, Maine for so many years. This unique schooner was conceived and designed by her owner, Captain Steven Pagels. Named after Capt. Pagels' grandmother, the Margaret Todd was built over a two year period by the Schreiber Boatyard in St. Augustine, Florida, and was launched on April 11, 1998.
The hull and deck are made of steel. The wood topmasts, gaffs and booms are made of native Maine spruce by Elk Spars of Bar Harbor. Almost all the woodwork was custom made in Southwest Harbor, Maine. Her windlass, which is used to hoist the anchor, comes from a Delaware Bay oyster schooner, and the standing rigging was made by the Hamilton Seine Loft. The four masted schooner rig, steel hull construction, and double centerboard design make the Margaret Todd unique on the east coast.
