Much more Flinterborg (now at sea) tomorrow.

Any guesses what vessel this  wheelhouse bridge sits astride?  It’s certainly NOT the Flinter ship. 

aap1

No schooner is she.

aap2

It docked for part of the past weekend at Pier 66, near Cornell, Frying Pan, and Harvey.

aap3

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.

aap5

The current name is Peacemaker,

aap4

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

aap6

sketches.  Inky fingers attest to the degree of effort.

aap7Here’s the entire vessel, rafted up with Harvey, whose red stack is visible between the masts.  Harvey docks at Pier 66, which you may have seen way at the start of a certain harbor sketchbook.

Below is one of two videos shot by none other than Good Morning Gloucester, who does an impressive interview with Peacemaker crew.  Thanks, Joey.
