Angelique meets US Coast Guard and Lloyd's specifications for sail vessels carrying passengers

In order that everyone aboard has a wonderful week, Captain Mike stipulates: The minimum guest age is 12. Moderation is expected in the use of alcohol. Excessive drinking is unacceptable among shipmates. In consideration of others, radios should not be brought aboard unless provided with earphones.
Was Angelique built for Maine windjamming?
Yes. Angelique was built in 1980 specifically for the Maine windjammer trade with passenger comfort in mind.
Why the red sails?
Angelique depicts an English fishing trawler (circa 1880) that fished the North Sea. It was common in England to treat sails to make the cotton canvas more resistant to mildew with tallow, tannic acid, and red ocher.
