The Brig Beaver arrives in Boston
Kathy Chapman writes-
Yesterday I had the privilege to ride on the Tea Party Ship Beaver in the parade to its new berth at the Tea Party Ship Museum in Fort Point Channel, Boston. Once in place the masts will be stepped and the rigging will be completed.
It was a perfect day, hundreds of people welcomed us.
What a great accomplishment for master shipwright Leon Poindexter (shown close up) and his crew at the Gloucester Marine Railways. Mr. Poindexter is known for his artistry and has worked on many vessels on the National Register of Historic Places as well as serving as the master shipwright for 20th Century Fox to retrofit the tall ship Rose for the Academy Award Winning motion picture Master and Commander starring Russell Crowe.
