GAFFED HEAD’SYL SCHOONER – April 27, 2015

Happy Monday one and all 🙂

The  flat gray mornings just keep coming but it did make for a comfortable walk and this nice photo of the Alcyone gaffed head’syl schooner out of Port Townsend, Washington. The Alcyone is a classic 81′ gaff rigged topmast schooner. In 1956, Seattle master shipwright Frank Prothero launched a boat he had been working on for six years. She’s a training vessel and I believe she can also be chartered. If you want to go for a virtual boat ride just click here.

That’s all I’ve got for you today as we head to a couple of appointments off island. Hopefully I’ll be back tomorrow with more Coupeville Impressions.

Enjoy your week ahead!
