Union Hands on Deck for the Regina Maris
On Saturday Nov. 23, despite blustery winds and pools of mud, Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp paid a visit to the Glen Cove waterfront to view the progress of a major volunteer effort being done by the second year apprentice class of the Empire State Carpenters Apprenticeship Committee of Local 7. The crew of men (and one woman) have been working diligently on the replication of the three-masted barkentine Regina Maris. The City of Glen Cove is providing all the materials and salvaged artifacts from the original ship, including the three masts, captain's wheel, the bow, figurehead and mast rigging are being placed where they belong on the ship. When completed, the replicated Regina Maris will stand along the esplanade, with benches overlooking the water on her deck. The ship and a pictorial history of her illustrious past will become a permanent fixture at Glen Cove's waterfront esplanade for the public to enjoy.
