The Smith Rhulanmd Yard is still in business

And one of their windows features relics from three of the fishing vessels they have launched. There are also models of several ships they have built, including the "Sherman Zwicker," named for a favourite son of this financially sound family.

This craft could be mistaken for the "Bluenose" except for the lack of topsail masts and a main boom in her sail rig. She had no usual need for sails except to hold position on the fishing banks or as auxiliary power when her 320 horsepower engines were out of action.
