BEAUTIFUL AND ATMOSPHERIC FOG DESCENDING OVER EASTERN POINT

FV Endeavor in the Foggy Sunset

Heading out to photograph wild creatures, instead I found fog. Beginning in the afternoon and lasting into sunset, waves and ribbons of fog enveloped the east end of Gloucester until only shapes and silhouettes were visible.

Fog Ribbons and FV Endeavor

A wedding reception was underway at the Yacht Club, lots of folks were out watching the setting sun, and a photo shoot was taking place on the Dogbar. Returning home, Niles Beach and Ten Pound Island were even more shrouded in fog. Final stop was the Paint Factory to catch the last glimmer of light. Looking towards Ten Pound Island from the Paint Factory, in the last Instagram you can see the sliver of a crescent moon.

Essex Built Schooner Finds Latest Home In Brooklyn

My son Brian forwarded to me this post on oldsaltdog.com. As the post points out, Highlander Sea spent some years at the Gloucester Marine Railways undergoing a major refit .

 

Pilot, New Schooner Restaurant/Bar Opens in Brooklyn to Cheers and a Few Jeers

Posted on August 8, 2017 by Rick Spilman

Pilot, a new seasonal restaurant and bar on an historic schooner has opened in Brooklyn, NY, off Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 6 on the East River. The opening has been met with cheers and a few jeers. The cheers are from those who enjoy the opportunity to dine on the water, and jeers from those who would prefer that the Highlander Sea, ex-Pilot, be restored and continue sailing.

The restaurant on the deck of a schooner is the second such venture by Alex and Miles Pincus, who also own Grand Banks, a seasonal restaurant on the fishing schooner Sherman Zwickerdocked at Pier 25 in Manhattan. See our review from 2014.

Highlander Sea, originally christened Pilot, was a gaff-rigged topsail schooner built in 1924 in Essex, Massachusetts by J.F. James and Sons. Designed by Starling Burgess, she served for 47 years as a Boston harbor pilot ship.

In the 1970’s she was sold through several owner who used her for voyaging and sail training.  Renamed Star Pilot and then Highlander Sea, the schooner was purchased in 2002 and underwent a major refit to serve as a community tall ship for Port Huron, Michigan. In 2011, the schooner was moved to Gloucester, MA and subsequently put up for sale.  Her arrival in New York in 2016 was captured by Will van Dorp on his Tugster blog.

 

Here are some previous posts on GMG documenting the schooner’s stay here in Gloucester.

H.A. Burnham launch of the Maria


It was a gorgeous day out in Essex yesterday as the Burnham’s launched their Friendship sloop  originally built back in the 60s by Harold Burnham’s grandfather and now rebuilt by his grandson and named after Maria the Grandmother.  After a 2 hour delay they greased up the rails and let her go!
