New Year in Boothbay Harbor
As the New Year begins, the dismantling of Ernestina-Morrissey continues but in the sheds the new construction begins!
Here is a photo from November to compare. The “ceiling” is the planking that covers the frames on the inside of the ship. The ceiling is still in place in the photo below. You can see the exhaust pipe overhead and the bulkhead that is nearly gone in the more recent photo. You can also see the hull aft to the transom encompassing the stern post, aft cabin and lazerette, also gone in the photo above.
As 2016 begins it is exciting to see work on the new structures for a SAILING Ernestina-Morrissey. Many thanks to the Schooner Ernestina Commission, Massachusetts’ Department of Conservation and Recreation, DCR representative Capt. Harold Burnham and Boothbay Harbor Shipyard.
