From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

he Evelina M. Goulart is an 83-foot (25.2-meter) fishing schooner built by Arthur D. Story in the Story Shipyard (now the Essex Historical Society and Shipbuilding Museum) in 1927. She is one of seven surviving Essex-built fishing schooners and the only one to be virtually unchanged from its original configuration. At some point in her life she was converted into a fishing dragger, being fitted with an engine for the purpose.

Throughout her life she was primarily used for swordfishing. In 1985 Hurricane Gloria touched down in the New England area and damaged the stern of the Goulart. Tied up to the wharf and retired, her engine was removed. At some point the bilge pumps failed and the vessel sank.

In 1990 Evelina M. Goulart was donated to the Essex Shipbuilding Museum. Housed in an open-sided shed, the ship was intended as an example of ship construction, once the ship was stabilized. However the hull is badly deteriorated and the vessel may end its days at the breakers, with only the significant portions preserved for the future.

Update: Fishing Vessel David & Jenna that drifted to Cohasset from Gloucester back in the water today.
