My purpose for entering here is simple- My great great grandfather was G. G Deering and he built one of the first 5 masted schooners called the Carroll A Deering. Carroll is my father's "Captain Carroll F Moffatt" grandfather. Carroll A Deering built a replica of the Carroll A deering which wrecked mysteriously - all hands disappeared. I grew up with it and other wonders of the vessel- the ships bell, the telescope that was used on the vessel, and the sextent as well. My father is a merchant mariner who spent some time in the Navy as a quartermaster 3rd class.

So with that family history I enter here to share and find other pieces of nostalgia.
