An Evening with the Schooner Highlander Sea

Website: Go to site
Start Date: Mar 29 2006
Location: Essex Shipbuilding Museum



Join Capt. Micah Allnutt of the HIGHLANDER SEA when 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.

Now back in the water after a just completed one-year refit, he 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, Captain Micah will host a Q&A session.

$5 members/$7 non-members. 7:30pm.
