"Pinky Schooner, Belfast, Maine, Early 20th Century"

Watercolor, 8 3/8" x 14"

The Pinky is named for its "pinked" stern, where the bulwarks extend aft and connect, sometimes in an upward curve to provide a crutch for the main boom. Thought to have descended from the earlier European "pinks," the New England version was a handy, seaworthy vessel employed in fishing, lobstering and as a light cargo carrier.
