Bob Slattery scratch-built this schooner from wood with some brass and cord augmenting.

Regenia S was a San Francisco Bay scow schooner. She was built in 1893. Sailing scows like the Regenia S were the “trucks” of the bay before there were roads and bridges to transfer cargos. Hundreds like her were built for the bay. There is only one left, the Alma. This schooner is about 120 years old and still sails.
