The 136-year-old Gulf Coast Bay Schooner underwent an eight-month historical restoration that was completed in March at the Bay County Boatyard in Panama City. The restoration work was completed by local craftsmen and volunteers and restored her appearance to a more accurate representation of her look when she was built in Pascagoula, Mississippi.
