Pullling the masts out of Schooner Adventure From Barry O’Brien

This last Wednesday down at The Gloucester Marine Railways, Dan Mayer or Mayer Tree Service drove his 125’ crane down from Essex and pulled the masts out of the Schooner Adventure. The plan is to inspect, repair and replace whatever is needed in preparation for sailing.

The folks behind the Schooner Adventure are hell-bent and determined to have her sailing again for the Schooner Festival. It’s has been a huge undertaking, and it’s not over, yet, but this short video gives you a little insight into the quality of the people who are bringing the Adventure back to sailing condition and the heritage of fishing under sail alive.

Best regards to you and your whole Good Morning Gloucester team! It’s wonderful what you folks do.
