Her sails are up and drawing, but the ancient (1805) schooner Polly is going nowhere. She’s hard aground, and the tide is dropping fast, skipper Chandler Farr probably having gently nosed her ashore for caulking and painting her bottom. This is in Owls Head Harbor where Farr made his home. Although built in Amesbury, Massachusetts, Polly was homeported in Rockland from 1876 to 1902, and before that in Mt. Desert. Later, she was registered in Belfast.
