Much more Flinterborg (now at sea) tomorrow.
Any guesses what vessel this wheelhouse bridge sits astride? It’s certainly NOT the Flinter ship.
No schooner is she.
It’s a barquentine, here entering Atlantic Basin some weeks back. For outa-towners, yes, that’s the Brooklyn Bridge in the distance and Empire State Building beyond that.
The current name is Peacemaker,
built in Brazil in 1989 as Avany. Peacemaker serves as flagship for a religious group called Twelve Tribes. How many religious groups have flagships?
Someone I know has made some preliminary
sketches. Inky fingers attest to the degree of effort.
Below is one of two videos shot by none other than Good Morning Gloucester, who does an impressive interview with Peacemaker crew. Thanks, Joey.
