1978 03:15 Regina Maris Humpback whale survey
This is the Regina Maris... a barkentine that was used by the first group of whale researchers to study Humpbacks in the Caribbean. She did her job with only one injury (pretty amazing since the mast was 90' and people were scrambling up it all the time). She finally sank in the Boston harbor about 15 years ago, used beyond repair. I am afraid to google her....

The organization that used her is still in operation Center for Whale Research. What a relief!

But the Regina has come to a sad end. I miss her.
