New Jersey has its own tall ship — the A. J. Meerwald, a restored 1928 Delaware Bay Oyster schooner — and it begins the season on April 15.
Paul Gray of Archi-Tech (on Phillips Boulevard in Ewing) will be on the volunteer crew to help sail the Meerwald from Bivalve to Philadelphia.”I believe they will be in Philly until the 26th, then they start their season of wandering around NJ doing school programs, educational sails, public sails and their teambuilding programs,” writes Gray. He explains:
Gray’s company, Archi-Tech, has signed his company up for the team-building event on the schooner in September. Says Gray: “I very much like the concept of a non-profit supporting themselves by this type of “commercial” activity.”
