The Day Has Finally Arrived- The Beaver Leaves Gloucester Railways for Her New Berth In Boston at the Tea Party Ship Museum Photos From Kathy Chapman

Kathy writes-

The day has arrived……The first of the three ships that will be a part of the new Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum will arrive in Boston Harbor on the Anniversary of the start of the American Revolution, Thursday, April 19 at 8:30am.

The Boston Tea Party event in 1773 is the single most important act that took place leading up to the American Revolution in 1775. The historic sailing vessel, the Beaver, will arrive on the 237th anniversary of the battle that began the American Revolution.

The completely restored and historically accurate hull of the Beaver will make it’s way down from Gloucester to Boston for the arrival at the new Museum. The Beaver will be towed to its berth at the Museum site in the Fort Point Channel. Once in place the masts will be stepped and the rigging will be completed.

Timelapse Video- The Launching of The Beaver From East Gloucester Marine Railways From Good Morning Gloucester

Bringing it to you first, natch!

This is 18 minutes of video compressed into 1 minute 40 seconds.

The new Boston Tea Party Museum replica ship was launched this morning from East Gloucester Marine Railways.

The ship will be part of a Tea Party museum including the replica ships from the Tea Party and is scheduled to open in June in the Fort Point Channel in Boston.  The spot of the museum  is close to the original site of the December 1773 tea party, where colonists dumped tea in the harbor to protest British taxes.
