Gloucester Marine Railways photo study

There are two big gaff-rigged topsail Essex Schooners hauled out at the Gloucester Marine Railways. The Highlander Sea and the Adventure are getting some hull maintenance. Let’s go take a closer look.

A Herring Gull looking for a snack stands on one of the rails. There is a pair of rails that the boats are hauled out on.

I do have some images of the Highlander Sea when she came into Gloucester a year ago. If you are nuts about Essex built gaff-rigged topsail schooners like me and just gotta have one, you can! The Highlander Sea is up for sale.

Boat maintenance, a never ending task I should think Steve.
