    Nice. She's a significant boat maintained by a very dedicated group of volunteers. One of very few original "tall ships" -- well over 100 years old. I had the pleasure of spending a night aboard a few years ago and taking the helm for a spell, too. That was something to remember.

    She still is but few people use her full name,

    It's an event for the "Borough". The new free day docks went in this summer.
    Tomorrow (10/21) is "Bristol day" which to me is just another flea market but they (the townsfolk) get kind of excited. Typical of small towns all throughout the country they all look backwards and say "Remember When" but just don't have any answers for now and try all kinds of things. Yet they still roll in the sidewalks at 5 every night and it's a ghost town every night

    I thought that she had been officially re-named as Gazela of Philadelphia... I checked Gazela, but I found that that is the name of an oil tanker. The WoodenBoat Registry lists her name as Gazela Philadelphia.

    I thought she was long gone. Disamantled years ago. Go figure.

    What a beautiful vessel. I love barquentines. They have been called the most feminine of all sailing vessels.

    Those shapely lines belie her size. Crew quarters in the ends of the hull are snug, but between them there's an absolutely cavernous fish hold. 140 feet on deck, 177 sparred.
