Join Captain Micah Allnutt of the HIGHLANDER SEA (ex-PILOT) as he presents the history, grandeur, and reconstruction of this 81-year-old, Essex-built schooner - one of only seven known to survive from the thousands that were built. The vessel is now back in the water after a recently completed one year refit. Capt. Allnut will go over the issues discovered while opening up the bottom of the vessel, as well as the evolution of the new systems design. He will share “a few things we learned along the way,” such as the unexpected history of the vessel uncovered while conducting research for the reconstruction. After the slide show and video showing the HIGHLANDER SEA’s history, Capt Micah will host an extensive Q & A session.
Wednesday, March 29 at 7:30 p.m. $5 members/$7 non-members. Held at the Essex Shipbuilding Museum, 66 Main Street, Essex. Call the Museum at 978-768-7541 or check the website at essexshipbuildingmuseum.org for more information.
