In 1992 Schooner Alert was launched and christened Tall Cotton, a southern expression that means Finest Kind. She was designed and built by Paul Rollins in York, Maine. In 2013 Alert was sold to Captains Perry Davis and Bethany McNelly-Davis. They converted the Alert from a commercial fishing schooner to a commercial passenger carrying vessel.
Maine Maritime Museum’s newly restored 1906 schooner Mary E is the oldest surviving Maine-built fishing schooner. Purchased by the museum in late 2016 and restored on the grounds over the last year, Mary E is open daily for dockside tours through October at the museum in Bath.
