This 114’ long knockabout Fishing Schooner (1907 – 1929) was launched at the Tarr & James Shipyard, Essex, MA, and was designed by Thomas F. McManus. It was the largest and fastest knockabout schooner in the New England fisheries for almost ten years. The model depicts its dory boat fishing configuration and includes eight billowing sails of paper. Research & Plans: by Howard I. Chapelle, Smithsonian Institution. Made as a companion to ER Sr’s model of Elsie in same collection, hence the paper sails.
