SSV Corwith Cramer Anchors in Ipswich Bay



Sighted another significant ship anchored in Ipswich Bay off of Lanes Cove. Found out it was the SSV Corwith Cramer, a teaching vessel that is part of Woods Hole Sea Semester program. The top picture was taken through a telescope, the bottom one is a stock photo from Woods Hole. Here is her current position. She was built in 1987 as a research vessel, rigged as a brigatine, 137' long, beam of 26' and has a complement of 36 persons. She headed out this morning.
It is sooo cool to see vessels like this and the Twizzle anchored off your back door.

  • Nice sighting. I was a student aboard the Cramer a few years ago. Had a blast - she's a fantastic ship.

  • It was a treat seeing her in Ipswich Bay. We don't get the traffic here that they do in Gloucester Harbor, so it is special to see ships like this anchored close by. We see the Coast Guard bouy tender Willow a couple of times a year--that's always a fun. My Dad worked on a NOAA oceanographic ship for his whole career, so I am partial to research vessels.
