  • It was sad to see the PILGRIM go the way it did. My daughter attended a week long day camp aboard her about 15 years ago.
    I have a unique 1912 125′ steel schooner which I have spent the last 15 years rebuilding over the winters while operating in ALASKA during the summer s as a salmon tender. I have redesigned the vessel for Oceanographic research and am finally finishing the last of the interior details. I think the ALEUTIAN EXPRESS might be a good fit for the PILGRIM spot for part of the year between Alaska, Hawaii and Washington operations.
