Schooner “American Eagle”. Photo taken earlier this month on Penobscot Bay. I had to idea the longest telephoto lens I own! I liked the way the afternoon sunlight was hitting the sails. Out of Rockland, Maine this schooner goes on 3-7 day cruises. She has a great history! She was built in Gloucester in 1930 and was the last fishing schooner built there, this being an auxiliary schooner as it was/is powered by both sails and engine. She is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places (as of 1991) and is a National Historic Landmark (1992). I have read that she is the last known surviving vessel of this type. She is 92 feet long on deck and about 20 feet wide. Outfitted for passengers, on the schematic diagram on their website I counted thirteen double-occupancy passenger cabins. #americaneagle#americaneagleschooner#windjammer#schooner

A fantastic run of sips at the minute. Really enjoyed this one, smooth with character. The joint is a good quality boozer, blend of your traditional pub and hipster watering hole. This is a definite stop off before any game at Moore Park or the SCC.

Additional comments - This certainly was a keeper. Smooth flowing lager, hit the spot. Smashing location with a small view over the Harbour Bridge from a great fronted beer garden with fantastic ambience.
