Wiscasset Maine is a beautiful town that everyone drives through when traveling along coastal Rt 1. Back in the 1930's two schooners were abandoned on the shoreline right next to the highway. And there they sat until finally succumbing to the elements in the 1990's. For decades I marveled at them whenever driving past. You couldn't help but think of times past when "men were made of iron and ships were made of wood".
