John A. Doerner – Corona

John A. Doerner – Corona.
This 394 ton schooner was built at Port Blakey, Washington in 1883 and was last known to be still afloat in 1920 after being sold to Peru in 1909. This depiction of the Corona is a sight rarely observed by anyone other than experienced seamen when the bowsprit plows into green water while cresting a giant sea leaving a spray in both port and starboard directions nearly as high as the ship itself.
