For the longest time, I had thought that I had taken rare photos of the masts of the Bluenose 2 on June 2, 2011 in Lunenberg, Nova Scotia.

But I just read a news article from September 2012 that claimed that the masts had not been in Lunenberg for two years, making this impossible!

So I was hoping the ship spotting community could help solve a truly confounding mystery - what is this ship?

The flagship of the Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic, Theresa E. Connor is Canada’s oldest saltbank schooner. Built in 1938 in Lunenburg, at the Smith and Rhuland Shipyard made famous as the birthplace of the original Bluenose, the vessel fished as a dory schooner for 25 years.
