“What, Steve”, you may ask, “what are you doing posting in the middle of the day?” Turns out that I got slimed by a cold last night so I went to work early and picked up my laptop to work from home. And what a day!
It’s the Highlander Sea from Port Huron, Michigan! She left for a sail to Gloucester on September 11th and arrived today.
Highlander Sea built by J.F.W. James & Son, was launched on October 2, 1924, from the A.D. Story shipyard in Essex, Massachusetts. That boom is 65’ long and weighs 2000 lbs!
But there is much more history on the Highlander Sea’s owner’s website which I encourage you to visit.
Sorry for the bits and pieces pictures, as I didn’t see her coming and she’s 154’ long!
