Windjammer Fact

On January 27, 1915, the four-masted, steel-hulled cargo ship William P. Frye was sunk by the commerce raider Prinz Eitel. The Frye was the first American merchant ship destroyed by the Germans in World War I. It was also the largest windjammer ever built, a product of the Sewall shipyard in Bath, Maine.
