After the last post with night time shots of the barquentine "Peacemaker" I figured a trip to the tall ship during daylight would bring out the elegant woodwork(brightwork)that I only got a glimpse of the night before.
The ship was built in Brazil as the "Avany". Her first owner was Frank Walker,a Brazilian industrialist.In 2000 a group called "The Twelve Tribes" bought her and restored her as she is today.She has an overall length of 150' a beam of 33' and draws 14' of water. She displaces 380 tons and mast height above the waterline is 126'. She carries 10,000 square feet of sail! She is open for tours from now through out the Gloucester Schooner Festival.
