Gertrude L. Thebaud

We were walking back from our walk to the shore in Carmel and spied a nautical shop. We decided to go in to has a look around. Inside the shop, we spied ghost from the past. The Gertrude L. Thebaud, the famous Gloucester Schooner that was the rival of the Bluenose. Gerturde L. Thebaud

I’ve linked the picture to the Nova Scotia Government website where you can view an archival film of this schooner as she races against the Bluenose off of Gloucester. The site also has many pictures of the Bluenose and the Gertrude L. Thebaud. Price tag on the model? $4900.

Holy schmokes, that's one expensive model. But what a gorgeous thing it is. Wow. We have several models of clipper ships but nothing like this. Going to the schooner pics link now.

Merry Christmas, Steve! Thanks for sharing so much of your world with us!
