conservation, grading and encapsulation of the coins for the numismatic market. . . . The Maine Maritime Museum is fund-raising to build a full-sized reconstruction of the 6-masted schooner W)oming on the spot from which she was launched into the Kennebec River in December 1909. Today, this location is part of the Museum ; back then it was part of the Percy & Small shipyard. The schooner Tiryoming was the biggest wooden sailing vessel ever to carry ca rgo at 329.5' in length and a 50.1' beam and a 30.4' depth of hold. Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington Street, Bath, ME; ph. 207 443-13 16; e-mail: maritime@bathmaine. org; web site: . . . The original W)oming was located and identified recently by the same firm that discovered the wreck of the steamship Portland. According to Arnold Carr of American Underwater Search & Survey, the ship is in rwo pieces in an undisclosed location off Cape Cod. The ship is ripped apart amidships, which supports th e theory that the fully-loaded vessel may have struck bortom in the trough of a wave during a gale. New evidence suggests Tiryoming may have collided with another vessel. Carr's team is planning to return to the site next summer to document and photograph the site. Carr and his team have been searching for the Tiryoming since the 1970s. T hey finally succeeded using side scan sonar and a magnetometer and armed with some new historical information. . . . The Erie Maritime Museum recently obtained a rare artifact from the IO September 1813 Battle of Lake Erie. The Naval Historical Center in Washington DC has loaned a historic cannon that was captured from the British by Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry's squadron. The 24-pounder long gun was part of the armament of the HMS Detroit, the British squadron Commander Robert Barclay's flagship.
