Fishing Schooner CLITONIA HalfHull

Fishing Schooner CLITONIA
The schooner CLITONIA was built in 1907 in Gloucester, MA. She was designed by John McManus and built by John Bishop. Her length was 121', beam was 24' and drew 12'8" of water. She was named for a yellow bell shaped flower that blooms in the forests in New England in June. It was said that she always led the fleet home. The American fishing schooners have now gone out of existence except for one or two preserved as museum exhibits. During the last sixty years of their evolution, they were admired for their sailing qualities, sea worthiness and beauty.
