In 1977 construction began on a half-scale model of the fishing schooner Rose Dorothea. Dedicated on June 25, 1988, the completed model spans a 66’6” length and a 12’6” beam. Provincetown gratefully acknowledges Francis A. “Flyer” Santos and a team of volunteers who created this grand tribute to the fishermen of Provincetown and to New England’s ship-building tradition.
