Here we view the sleek lines of the American Eagle in Great Cove earlier this month. We see her early in the morning before her passengers come on deck.


When she was ready to leave, there was no wind; so, she motored out. But, here’s what she looks like under sail here at a prior time:


The Eagle is a 90-foot coastal cruiser and a National Historic Landmark out of Rockland, Maine. She was launched in 1930 as the Andrew & Rosalie, the last fishing schooner built in Gloucester, Massachusetts. In 1941, during World War II, she was renamed American Eagle. She fished until 1983 and then went through hard times until she was totally renovated in 1986 as a tourist schooner.
