One of the 6 remaining old schooners built in Essex, MA is now 118 years old.
Len Burgess writes-
On February 1, 1894 118 years ago the Effie M. Morrissey, the ship that became Ernestina, slid down the ways at the James and Tarr Yard in Essex, Massachusetts.
The Ernestina has been designated by the Department of the Interior as a National Historic Landmark. She has sailed on through the century to become one of six remaining Essex-built schooners and is now in New Bedford, MA.
She reached within 600 miles of the North Pole and is the last ship to bring immigrants to this country under sail from the Cape Verde Islands. Ernestina was given to the people of the United States by the people of the Cape Verde Islands in 1982. Her history is a remarkable legacy that spans continents, races and generations.
A very large scale model of the “Morrissey” is in the Waterline Center at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum.
Here are some videos and photos I took of her back in May of 2009-

You know those community people who are always there volunteering to help make all the good stuff happen around town?
Well we’ve got quite a few of them who just so happen to be part of the GMG team but my buddy Ed Collard is ALWAYS the first guy to jump in and volunteer his time to make others enjoy themselves in our community.
I couldn’t even begin to list all the stuff he has helped out on and if I tried to I’d never make it out of the office today. All done with a smile. The guy is truly special and I can’t begin to express how lucky I am to have him as a friend and confidant.
So be sure if you see the guy with the porno stash today you wish him a happy birthday. We will have some breakfast at Passports at 8:45AM and then he will be setting up the lights and buoys on the Lobster trap tree.
Happy Birthday Buddy!
Write how old you think he is in the comments to this post.
It’s hard to believe Snoop Maddie Mad will be two years old tomorrow. Stop growing my sweet little maniac.
When you’re 10 anything goes! Kylie always tends to eat “outside the box”. But that’s what being a kid is all about!
