Please see the blog entry “M/V Current Pride” dated 8 July 2013 for more details on this vessel.
MAILBOAT NAME: M/V Current Pride
PAST NAMES: none
DIMENSIONS: 88 tons
YEAR BUILT: not known
EARLY CAREER: Nassau, Upper & Lower Bogue, The Bluff, Current Island, North Eleuthera, and Gregory Town, James Cistern and Hatchet Bay / Alice Town in South Eleuthera, back to Nassau.
The wooden planking of her hull are clearly visible in this photo, despite a high level of maintenance. I believe that the Current Pride is the last of the wooden mailboats plying the trade presently.
