Schooner Richard Robbins Sr. has not appeared in this blog for almost 11 years, but once last summer while I was looking for something else, there she came into view, and sporting a fresh coat of paint.

Richard Robbins Sr., built in 1902 as a Delaware Bay oyster schooner, is one of five that remain.  An NPS report on one of the others —Isaac H. Evans–can be read here.

More on RR Sr. here.

Anyone know how deep the centerboard swings?

I don’t know if she’s still out of the water.  When she went (or goes) in, she’ll need to hang in the slings awhile to allow the banks to swell shut again.

All photos by Will Van Dorp, back last August.
