FLYING FISH

FLYING FISH - click to enlargeFLYING FISH - click to enlarge
The Flying Fish was designed by Jeremiah Burnham and built by public subscription in Essex, Massachusetts in 1860. Because of her unusual construction and large sail area, she was one of the fastest schooners in the Gloucester fishing fleet. In those days speed was money. For over twenty years this design dominated the market schooner class and many other shipbuilders used it as a model. Today this type of schooner remains a popular model and is still frequently built.
