The schooner A.F. Thorne was the first vessel insured by the Atlantic Mutual Companies in 1842. In 1990, the Atlantic Mutual Companies commissioned artist Peter R. Thibeault to create this ship hull of the A.F. Thorne. This piece is now on display at the Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Library at St. John’s University.
