The "Mineola", ca. 1915
Contributed by Friendship Museum
The Mineola was built in 1901 for Captain I. E. Achibald at Port Clyde, and was designed especially for the rough Portland-Rockland run with its many harbors. That run was later extended to include Eastport and Jonesport as well. The Mineola weighed 367 gross tons, was 121 feet long, had a 26 foot beam, was 9.6 foot deep, and had a 450 horse power motor.
The town of Friendship had a special affection for the Mineola. It was thought to be a good money maker, warm and comfortable, and felt like home. When the Mineola was spotted coming into Friendship harbor, villagers would flock to the Jameson & Wotton Wharf to greet her.
