“My hope, my heaven, my trust must be,
My gentle guide, in following thee.”
― Walter Scott, The Lady of the Lake
The seine boat SANTA MARIA was found capsized at her berth in Harbor Cove Friday morning. It took the Coast Guard, Fire Department and volunteers to right and drain her.
Apparently, the boat was improperly made fast so that the rising tide hung her up and capsized her.
“I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude.”
Henry David Thoreau

The Schooner ADVENTURE held an open house on Saturday to celebrate the the issuance of a final certificate inspection by the U.S. Coast Guard. The approval to carry passengers on sailing trips caps a 27 year, 5 million dollar effort to restore ADVENTURE , built in 1926, to seaworthy condition. It last fished in 1953.
The restored vessel will serve as a base for extensive educational programs focused on Gloucester’s history as a major fishing port. It will also be available for charter for trips of up to four hours.
