Artist's Description

This three-masted schooner was built in 1941, originally as a two-masted “schooner-dragger” and launched as the “Virginia”. She spent over forty years commercially fishing the Grand Banks and George’s Banks. Her career spanned the New England ports of New Bedford and Gloucester in Massachusetts, Rockland in Maine. She was a working fishing boat, spending weeks at sea in search of Cod, Haddock, Flounder, and Ocean Perch. From 1968 to 1986 she was know as the “Lady in Blue”, named after a prayer, and was captained by Sam and Paul Frontiero, father & son who fished out of Gloucester. In 1986, she was completely rebuilt in Thomaston, Maine, and certified by the United States Coast Guard. The restoration included adding a third mast, watertight bulkheads, new deck, bulwarks, interior, rigging, machinery, etc. She was renamed the “Natalie Todd”, and operated as a charter boat out of Bar Harbor, Maine. In October of 1996, she was purchased by the American Heritage Marine Institute, and began her historic 7500 mile sail through the Panama Canal to her new home in Rainbow Harbor, Long Beach, California.
