He would rise to become one of America"s most respected yacht designers during a period which is now regarded as the golden age of American wooden yacht design.

Will McLean, a graduate of Maine Maritime Academy, said he expects the schooner to be in Belfast for about a week while the schooner gets a new coat of bottom and topside paint. Very interesting for the serious nerd. How did a boatbuilder from an ancient island in the eastern Med come to be working on an Arctic schooner, you might ask.

The vessel was to remain at Lyman-Morse for another week or so for final buttoning-up and engine fettling, then head back to MMA at Castine for re-rigging and her home for the foreseeable future.

She also undoubtedly spent much less time in the arctic regions than the Bowdoin. Bowdoin arrived at the end of May for its first visit to Front Street Shipyard.

Crowninshield's first name was Bowdoin. Crews removed and preserved the original interior, then attacked rotted frames, punky planking, and deteriorated stanchions. The original interior went back in, and she was more or less ready to go. Schooner Crew staffed these sails, under the direction of Capts.

The 88' x 21' boat was built extra stout for duty in the Arctic's heavy seas and relentless ice, with double framing, double planking, an external layer of Brazilian greenheart "ice armor," and a big steel shoe on the prow. As always, as soon as our lines were made fast, Bowdoin crew hoisted our big blue Maine Maritime Academy banner, and spent time talking about MMA with interested passers-by and visitors.

Bartlett experienced so many narrow escapes with the Morrissey that the crew thought the ship was well nigh unsinkable. Schooner Bowdoin Day April 15,on the waterfront brought a wonderful turnout from students, staff and the community.

Published Enough Reading About it? Sharp restored the schooner to operating condition and sailed her to Provincetown, Massachusettsin on a sentimental journey to MacMillan's home, where the admiral, in his 90s, saw Bowdoin sail again one last time.

Published Schooner Captain By Nora Ayland the captains daughter The memories of a man born into the life of a sailor in In the newly independent Republic of Cape Verde gave the Ernestina back to the United States as a symbol of the ties that linked the two nations, but it was not until that the ship actually returned to homeport in New Bedford, Massachusetts, as an educational vessel.

The perfect end to a perfect week. For the first thirty years, the foot long, two-masted schooner was variously a fishing vessel and cargo ship. Purchased by friends of MacMillan, the battered schooner was refitted once again for Arctic exploration.

Starting on October 28, we downrigged the schooner and she was fully covered by the second week in November. In years gone by a line of practical development ran from generation to generation through the common experience of shipbuilders and seafarers.

About two years after that event, on 23 Octoberthe auxiliary schooner was placed in reduced commission. Also contains information on shoreside programs, articles describing sail training experiences, and all the information needed to plan the adventure of a lifetime at sea.

President Tyler hosted a sail and cocktail party, which all felt was successful.Sep 29,  · The Maine Maritime Academy cancelled a visit of the "Bowdoin" at Portland on June 28 after a routine rigging check on June 23 had revealed that the ship's main mast was damaged.

Cracks were visible in the mast, but the full extent of the damage was not yet known. On June 25, a shipwright went aboard to conduct an in-depth inspection of the mast. I would like to remove the statement that Bowdoin is the only American schooner designed for Arctic exploration, but I would like to discuss my suggestion rather than just arbitrarily change it.

The fact is that the B.B. Crowninshield (not Fife) designed schooner Adventuress was designed for an expedition to Alaska.
