Friendship Harbor, ca. 1940
Anchored off the end of Stenger's wharf is the Foster D, a lobster smack designed in 1901 by Sherman Jameson. Jameson was one of the original owners of Stenger's wharf. The Foster D plied the waters of Muscongus Bay for over 45 years, picking up lobsters from off shore locations and lobster boats, to be sold at the wharf. The boat had a large perforated well for holding lobsters so that water could circulate.
