The crippled “pirate ship” towed into Massachusetts’ Gloucester Harbor on April Fools’ Day after its crew was rescued by the Coast Guard is still in the city, but in drydock at Rose Marine on Main Street, according to an article on GloucesterTimes.com.

“We’ve been working on it for two months and hope to go from here in three weeks,” said owner Joe Tilley of the Liana’s Ransom on Labor Day. He and his wife, Liana, for whom the boat is named along with her adopted dog, Ransom, were on board checking on the progress of their gaff-rigged schooner. Ironically their visit coincided with the 31st Gloucester Schooner Festival.
