The Coaster came over from Marquette

The Coaster was here in July, 2010 (below). She will return in July, 2013.
Niko Economides bought the Coaster II in Maine and brought it to his home town of Marquette Michigan where he uses it to teach people, especially kids, how to sail. He also runs charters with the boat. It has been as far away as Hawaii and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Coaster is based on a small coasting schooner of the type that worked in Marquette carrying cargo and goods. She is seen here taking another group of sailors out for a ride.
