Grand Banks Schooner

The schooner in this novel is based on the Sherman Zwicker which currently resides on the Hudson River.   Today, the ship has been turned into a bar/restaurant.  She was similar to the Bluenose; however, rather than made for speed, this schooner was crafted to work.  She’d carry dories to the grand banks where the fisherman of Newfoundland could fish and earn a living.

When Eddie discovers an opportunity to join the Grand Banks Schooner as a guest, he jumps at the chance. Here he meets a lively crew of Newfoundlanders along with a host of other interesting guests.

The schooner in this novel really is the vessel that carries the story forward. Find out why in the upcoming novel, “Me Dear Love”.
