Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

Can't focus this AM BUT in the course of researching the CC's I stumbled over the fact that the SALTAIRE was also built by Cape Cod Shipbuilding. At 80' she was the largest vessel they ever built.

Cape cod Shipbuilding has an interesting historical Website at

Besides lots of history about their sailboats, it has a picture of the Saltaire, which was launched in November, 1919

Jim- followed up with the Cape Cod shipbuilding website as I sent you- asked for some history of the vessel.
