Oriole HalfHull
« on: December 27, 2006, 12:06:18 PM »

"Queen of the Fleet "
One of the fastest and most beautiful vessels out of Gloucester.  She lived from 1908 until 1916 when she was rammed and sunk by a steamer. The Oriole was built in 1908 by Tarr and James at Essex MA. she was designed by Tom McManus of Boston. She was fast and able with a tremendous sail area. She was of the round bow, semi-knockabout type. There was something special about her and that was why the fishermen called her the beautiful ORIOLE.
