Schooner on the Willamette.

Just north of the Marquam. This schooner was in port for the Piratefest up at Cathedral Park in St. John's, and appeared to be earning some extra $$ by taking some peds on a pleasure cruise (she came about and headed back down the river sortly after passing under the Marquam).

I'm sure the shades of Larry Sullivan, Jim Turk and Bunco Kelly1 will gaze upon it forelornly when it passes Ankeny street...

1 Infamous crimpers and shanghaiers. Turk is said to have shanghaied his own son.
