Commander Oliver Hazard Perry’s famous dispatch “We have met the enemy and they are ours…” went on to reference a merchant sloop turned man-o-war in the Battle of Lake Erie, September 10, 1813. Friends Good Will is a 2004 replica of that fateful vessel. She was designed and built to be rigged and sailed by Michigan Maritime Museum volunteers and today serves as an historic flagship for the preservation of traditional maritime skills.
