Please read some information about "Bill of Rights":
This ship was Constructed in 1971 in South Bristol Maine by Harvey F. Gamage. Commissioned by Captain Joe Davis to be a sailing vessel with the qualities of speed, the grace of sail, lasting strength that can sail into the future.
Clipper-bowed, long and lean in the sheer, she represents an reminder of a time, long gone now, that bequeathed an aura of romance and adventure to today. She stands for a recreation of a splendid era of American shipbuilding and seafaring.
The Bill of Rights was fashioned from the drawings of the schooner Wanderer, an 1856 vessel build to carry cargo from New Orleans to New York. Joe Davis put together a team of the nations top boat builders and designers, including Fred Bates, Harvey Gamage, Jim Mccurdy, Ted Hood, and Philip Rhodes to make sure that the vessel was all that Joe dreamed of.
