McAllister Bros. Invites You to Sign On for the Wavertree's Most Important Voyage Our tugs shepherding the historic ship Wavertree back to her berth at New York's South Street Seaport Museum are playing their part in an undertaking in which everyone who cherishes the seafaring heritage should share. The Wavertree is a classically beautiful full rigged ship, brought to New York in 1970 through the generosity of supporters of the then fledgling Seaport Museum.

This summer, thanks principally to private contributions, our tugs pulled the ship away to Hoboken for major structural restoration in the Bethlehem Steel yard. Volunteers labored away mucking out bilges and cleaning and repainting, as the shipyard crew did their varied jobs.

Why Not Join In? We are proud to contribute too . The records don't show whether our tugs handled the Waver tree when she left New York under sail in 1895, but we had been in business in the harbor for over a generation at that time. Since then our business has become worldwide. And we know that our industry, the shipping industry, has a role of deep importance to play in keeping alive the proud traditions, the spirit of loyalty, cooperation and enterprise-the things that are needed to conceive great voyages, and to make them. The Wavertree embodies the history of an age when men sang at their work, dreamed tall dreams and opened our world through far voyages made under conditions of hazard and difficulty. Her most important voyage is the onward voyage she has to make today, a voyage down the seas of time to greet oncoming generations and encourage them to remember and share in what she and her people achieved at sea. That' s the voyage we invite you to sign on for.
