Merry Christmas from the Essex Shipbuilding Museum!

Essex Shipbuilding Museum’s flagship “Lewis H. Story” was a big attraction at the Salem Maritime Festival on Saturday. Intentionally rolling the ship over at low tide, as shown, is how the original Chebbaco 2-man fishing schooners of the 1700’s would unloaded their catch of the day and also the way they would repair and paint the bottom when the tide was out. The Shipbuilding Museum’s booth at the festival was also very busy all afternoon.

Barry O’Brien and his volunteer teachers, Len Burgess, Kathy Chapman, Dave Delorey, Tony Schettino, and Mike Dyer, lead an intense photo workshop at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum Saturday to help raise money for the Museum. We had perfect weather and enthusiastic attendees. Here’s the class picture taken by Dave Delorey (who magically always manages to get into the photo too).
I slipped in the muddy flat and covered my entire leg with sludge. Got eaten alive by mosquitoes.
But it was worth it for this.
The Lewis H. Story, (flagship of the Essex Shipbuilding Museum)
was launched Tuesday April 24 after weeks of repairs and painting by
Museum volunteers. She’s tied up in the creek next to the Schooner Ardelle.
Don’t know if anyone asked you to help us publicize our upcoming 2012 Volunteer Day Mug-Up scheduled for Saturday March 31 from 10:00 to 12:00 noon at the museum 66 Main Street, Essex, MA 01929. I’ve attached our volunteer application as well as our poster for this event. We need volunteers! Anything you and GMG can do to help spread the word would be appreciated.

Attached, see info about the new Wicked Tuna TV show premiere based on the Gloucester Tuna fishing industry – with some segments shot at the Topsider Bar & Grill – bar area. Some of my photography may be on view (I had to sign a National Geographic release). Stay tuned. Thanks, Judith
