Perhaps the Author of this information could do a bit more research before posting .... "It was built in Essex CT in 1921 at the A.D. Story Shipyard." As a New Englander, He should know better and check his facts for accuracy before stating such for the world to read.

Mr. Banker,

I pulled this information from the National Historic Landmark Nomination submitted by Mystic Seaport Museum; a reputable resource. If this is not correct, what is the correct information?

I have spent many years fishing from New England ports and it is amazing how simular the conditions below deck on the old side trawlers resemble the below decks on the schooner
