I know it’s from *blech* New York, but this blog has some fantastic photos, watercolors and stories from *blech* New York harbor.  Well worth a look.  If you are a schooner lover it’s a must visit.

Hedre’s a funny post about “Fishing Boats”- http://bowsprite.wordpress.com/2009/05/01/fishing-boats/

There’s also some beautiful watercolors of the Lettie G- http://bowsprite.wordpress.com/2009/04/19/the-schooners-of-new-york-harbor/

The author lists the Lettie G as the “Schooner Howard G. Lettie”.

I always thought it was the Lettie G Howard, goes to show how much I know about these boats.

For my posts on schooners including the Lettie G when she was in Gloucester click this text

  1. Oops! thank you, Joey! my error! duh. And, sigh, right, a bit, about *blech* NYC…i’m tiring of hearing fish cough. Ah, but, the 6th boro…it’s growing on me. I can’t identify it, but it’s waving hello. Thank you again! Harborgrowth and I are waving: Good Morning Gloucester!

  2. Hi Joey, you are right on the schooner’s name. It is the Lettie G. Howard – launched at Essex by AD Story in 1893.

    -great blog, keep it up.
