Tyrone And Other Boats

During my final lurk of the waterfront today, I spied an old wooden sailboat laying against the east face of Commercial Wharf. Her name is Tyrone and she hails from Chatham, MA. Not sure what kind of a boat she is as I'm not a fan of rag boats. Perhaps someone could chime in and let us know in the comments section of the blog. Here are a few pictures of Tyrone-

Marie, The Rag boat is a schooner and beautiful boat. yes a sail boat. Great lines for a early 1900s boat. I have painted several of this style. I would love to paint this boat with the the ukrainian Church in the back ground. By the way enjoy your blog. I'll be coming out to Nantucket in a few weeks to do some painting. I specialize in custom paintings of scenes of Nantucket.
