Fort Trumbull's Miliary Dispatch Boat
This schooner, before the Civil War, belonged to Brigadier General Ian McKay. He donated it to Fort Trumbull for the duration of the war as a means of moving dispatches by sea along the New England Coast. The Schooner has a crew of two and will accomodate up to four people for a short cruise.
