Welcome to the new Schooner Ernestina ex Effie M. Morrissey website. As we build this site we intend to make it as informative and interactive as possible. We will share news of the efforts to return Ernestina to serving the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the ship’s national and international community as she has in the past. We will recruit volunteers to help those efforts and report the actions taken on the many ideas generated at the Ernestina Forum. We will be expanding the photo galleries. We have included the award-winning pre-2005 website developed by Eric Swanzey and maintained by Gregg Swanzey as a resource for information about the ship’s history and activities up to 2005. Please explore this site and tell your friends too. Help us spread the news of the Schooner Ernestina ex Effie M. Morrissey, this incredible National Treasure!
