Zodiac, Classic Schooner

Sailing near the harbour I saw this old girl come by. Thought I'd share.

Re: Zodiac, Classic Schooner

Just the word schooner causes boat lust in me. Pictures of this
lovely gaff rigged schooner will last me for days.

Ah, trolling speed, but maybe a bit slow for the big Northern Cohos? Late August was always the best time for us.

Would like to see it in a good blow. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Zodiac, Classic Schooner

pretty boats and one of my favorite movies, saw it on TV long time ago.
Though a real beauty is my wallpaper, "The America". too big, too old,
requires to large a crew, OMG she is beautiful.

Re: Zodiac, Classic Schooner

Looks like the schooner "Bluenose". Many years ago on a trip "back east", we went aboard the replica of Bluenose in Lunenburg, Nava Scotia. Even at rest, it was beautiful.


Bluenose II Schooner ? Lunenburg, Nova Scotia?s Famous Tall Ship | novascotia.com

We have a large framed picture of it in our garage, beautiful.

Re: Zodiac, Classic Schooner

The bluenose is a beautiful boat. I want to go to Halifax now. I could list all the things I don't like about the America, to much overhang on the stern, too much rake on the masts, the main boom is too long, with classic beige sails she looks like she is junk rigged, but somehow the overall leaves me weak in the knees OMG .
