Folk music icons Woody Guthrie and Pete Seeger are having a reunion of a nautical nature.

The Daily Freeman of Kingston (N.Y.) reported that two Hudson River replica sloops are being restored at the same upstate New York boatyard, according to the Associated Press. One was named after Guthrie; Seeger launched the other in the late 1960s.

The Woody Guthrie was named for the folk singer, who died in New York in 1967. It was built in 1978 to support Seeger's larger sloop, the Clearwater. Seeger died in 2014.

The boats help promote environmental concerns in the Hudson Valley and are being restored at the Hudson River Maritime Museum in Kingston, the Clearwater's winter home.
