Further Comments

Built in 1897, the Motor Vessel Josephine has literally gone from

sail, to steam to diesel.  Originally launched as an oyster dredger in 

the Chesapeake, she was refit by the Navy as a steam vessel and worked

as a Pilot Boat in the Essex harbors during the World War.   Once she was

decommisioned, she was refit as a diesel driven Trawler.

  In 1995, she was rescued  by my husband from sinking.   He has put 6 or 

7 trees back into her to keep her alive.  She has been a source of great 

pleasure and is still quite sturdy.  She  needs love we find ourselves unable 

to provide due to my husband's poor health and our lack of funds.

We are praying to the Lord that we will find the next people who will be her

caretakers and love her and enjoy her the way that we have.  If you are 

out there, please don't let this dream die.
