Gloucester Museum School – Project Adventure Summer Camp – Rowing the Jones River Salt Marsh
Martin Del Vecchio submits-
This is how kids start their day in the Project Adventure Summer camp; by rowing the Jones River Salt Marsh to the day’s destination. My kids have done this camp for four years now, and they absolutely love it.

My doctors investigated the pain in my upper legs, and ordered up my first MRI, a story unto itself. Presently, I’m receiving radiation therapy every day for two weeks at the Lahey Medical in Peablody. Thank you, Easter Bunny, for helping me look forward and lifting my spirits.
You Can Own The American Eagle For $750,000 (Which Is a Steal Considering How Much Money They’ve Dumped Into The Adventure)
The American Eagle Has Been Completely Restored Meticulously And Can Actually Take Paying Passengers
(No slight to the well intentioned and passionate people who have donated millions upon millions to the restoration of The Schooner Adventure) It’s going to be awesome once The
Gloucester’s Big Dig Adventure gets sailing but in the meantime you can get the last Gloucester built fishing schooner which is a proven turn key sail operation.

When I knew the American Eagle she was offloading whiting here at our dock- Captain Joe and Sons and she looked like she did in this first picture-
Frankie and I would nail the wooden box covers on the boxes of whiting to be shipped to New York’s Fulton Fish Market. If you would have told me back then that The American Eagle would ever have gotten the makeover it got and be selling in 2015 for $750,000 I would have laughed you out of the building. Probably one of the greatest success stories out of many failed dreams of restoring old, huge money to maintain wooden fishing boats.

The American Eagle used to offload whiting and groundfish here at our dock back in the day. It was an eastern rigged dragger which most of the Gloucester fleet was back then and Captained by Rosalie’s father Captain Joe Piscitello.
The American eagle was bought from her father and converted into the boat she is now, a schooner. You can read all about it here- http://www.schooneramericaneagle.com/about/history.htm
and now this is what she looks like-

Come sail away with the Schooner Adventure! See what its like to be out on the open ocean aboard a racing Schooner in the 2014 Mayor’s Race!
Wednesday was a busy day for the Adventure. Her crew finished repairing the stem and getting her ready to move. She was re-launched at the evening high tide, and left GMR for her new at Gloucester Maritime on the Harbor Loop. We had some friends and family come by to see us off. Graham Makay once again captained the Adventure for her short ride across the harbor. We were welcomed by our newly expanded family from Gloucester Maritime, with board members, family and friends from both organizations joining in a champagne toast. A row crew also came out to give us an all oar salute. Despite a bit of rain, the mood at the wharf was quite festive. The Adventure’s Sarah Tuvim recognized that between the 2 organizations, we made a wonderful rainbow of raincoats to brighten our evening.
Today I went down to Maritime Gloucester to take a look at Schooner Adventure at her new summer home. While there, I ran into Jim Burkholder and Christine Minnix of New Hampshire. Jim and Christine have a particular interest in Adventure. Jim’s grandfather was Col Edwin H. Cooper, who, in the 1930s, photographed Adventure and other maritime subjects.Jim and Christine have recovered the collection and have reproduced many of the images as prints and note cards.They can be reached at email@example.com or 603 997 9521.
The Gloucester Marine Railway is a busy place these days. Everyone is busy getting their boats ready now that
we have some warm weather. The tug Towline is being painted. The Ardelle came out on Monday and was
powerwashed, Harold Burnham expects her to go back in Wed morning at high tide, about 5 a.m. The Adventure’s crew are
very busy painting, caulking, and replacing the outer section of the stem. Geoff Deckenbach expects her to go
back in on Wed evenings high tide, about 5 p.m. The Adventure will motor over to the Harbor Loop which she will make
her new home by the Maritime Museum. Meanwhile, the Phyllis A’s team is raring to go with her restoration, we are awaiting
word on when she can come up into dry dock. Workers pictured include Geoff, Manny from GMR, John Miles, Tony Finnociarro,
Sarah Tuvim, Katherine Richmond of KR Painting all on the Adventure, and Doug Parson’s with the Phyllis A. Michael Bergman
stopped by. He is very anxious to get back onboard to continue working on making the rat’s rails (ladder like structure up to the
top of the masts).

The Schooner Adventure welcomes her new captain, Stefan Edick (on the right in the blue cap), shown here planning for pipe installation with ship keeper, Geoff Deckebach.
The Adventure has a newly constructed temporary cover over the stern to allow her crew and volunteers to do caulking on deck. April 22, 2014 had John Miles, Sarah Tuvim,
Anders von Ashwege, Richard Smith and Tony Finnociarro removing the old and installing new caulking on deck. Prepping for a fresh coat of paint has also been started.
Meanwhile below deck, Capt. Stefan Edick, Geoff Deckebach,and engineer Bill Whitney collaborated on the location for some new plumbing for re-installation of the fore head.
Geoff assures me that anyone who would like to volunteer to help with some of the upkeep of the Adventure would be very welcome. There is plenty of work available for people
of any skill level.
