Artist's Description

Adventuress leaves Gig Harbor, WA for another day on Puget Sound. The Adventuress was built in 1913 by the Rice Brothers in East Boothbay, Maine. She is 133’ in overall length, 21’ at the beam with a draft of 12’ and displacement of 115 tons. She carries a sail area of 5,478 square feet.

She was built for John Borden II for the purpose of exploring the Alaskan Arctic and capturing Bowhead whales for the American Museum of Natural History. Failing at that the schooner was sold to the San Francisco Bar Pilot’s Association in 1914 and worked the San Francisco Bay from 1915 to 1951. In the 1980’s she was restored by the group, Sound Experience, and is now used as a training vessel and living history museum.
