Steve B Represents!

Steve Borichevsky who runs Shooting My Universe and who I consider one of the top photographers around stopped by yesterday to take a few pictures, help me with some of the settings on my new camera and grab one of the new GMG Stickas!  If you haven’t already subscribed to Steve’s Blog, do so here– you won’t be disappointed.

Steve took this self portrait using a remote control which you can see in his hand while he was applying one of the new GMG Stickas to his car.

My Incredible Adventure- The Liberty Clipper

DSC_2052 [640x480]

Home Port: Boston
Rig: Gaff Topsail Schooner
Year Built: 1983
Sparred Length: 125 Feet
Draft: 8 Feet
Beam: 25 Feet
Hull: Steel
Web Site: Liberty ClipperDSC_2056 [640x480]

The 125-foot Schooner ‘Liberty Clipper’ is a majestic steel replica of an 18th century clipper ship.

The term clipper as applied to ships may derive from the idea of them cutting through the water. Clipper bows were distinctively narrow and heavily raked forward, which allowed them to rapidly clip through the waves. The cutting notion is also suggested by the other class of vessel built for speed, the cutter. One of the meanings of clip since the 17th century is “to fly or move quickly”, possibly deriving from the sound of wings. The term clipper originally applied to a fast horse and most likely derives from the term clip meaning “speed”, as in “going at a good clip”.

As Bobby Ryan said to me in our tour “We like to name our vessels after significant Gloucester vessels“.  Here you see what Bobby was talking about with the two fermentation tanks named Adventure and Thomas E Lannon.

Look for part two of our video tour at 1PM
