The Margaret D Painted By Bill Hubbard

Good Morning Joey,
Joey,
Attached is my recent painting of another Dahlmer boat.  The Margaret D. was
launched in Dunkirk, NY and brought to Gloucester in 1910.  She was owned by my
Grandfather, Capt. John A. Dahlmer and christened by my mother, then 9yr.old Margaret
Dahlmer.  The Dahlmers lived on Rocky Neck then and later moved to Hovey Stree.
The Margaret D fished mostly as a gillnetter and later as a western-rigged
dragger.  My painting shows her returning from gillnetting, rounding Eastern
Point and about to pass Dog Bar Breakwater into the harbor.
She went ashore in fog on Salt Island in 1914 and was a total loss.  Grandfather
never began a trip on Good Friday or Friday 13th.
