Eine Kleine Nachtpost, She’s Beautiful!

I do the Eine Kleine Nachtpost entries when something happens and I just can’t wait to share it, and such is the case tonight!

Let me be among the first to welcome the Ardelle to her new home!

The wind was blowing out of the south and the Ardelle played off of the breakwater for a while. She then turned south and came about and ran into Gloucester Harbor as if it was dug just for her.

Here the Pinky Ardelle rounds Ten Pound Island.

Still under full sail, the Ardelle heads into the inner harbor to her new home!

Ardelle was built in Essex, but Gloucester will be her home.

Remember last September when there was the Frame Up?

You can check out Boat Building with Burnham and see the whole process of building a Essex built schooner.
