I just got an email from Jan Christensen that there is a tentative date for a final chantey sing aboard Peking before she is shipped off to Hamburg to be the centerpiece of the maritime museum there. If you can make it, the tentative date is August 14 August 7. I will post updates here.

Hi, EBarnacle - I added a bit to the thread title so people will know what it's about. I take it that the sailing ship Peking has been sold, so does that mean that the entire collections of historic ships is being removed from South Street Seaport in New York? Will there be a new location for chantey sings in New York City?
I'm glad I had the time to make a couple of visits to this wonderful maritime museum.

article in NY Times said selling the Peking would supply funds to keep the South Street Seaport afloat http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/15/nyregion/steely-veteran-of-the-sea-to-make-a-voyage-home.html

Jamie White says the same in comments at http://www.oldsaltblog.com/2015/11/windjammer-peking-returning-to-hamburg/

and soon I will have another reason I should visit Hamburg ....

Thanks, Joe. The "new" location for the past few years is at the Noble Gallery in Sailors Snug Harbor, Staten Island, 3rd Sunday of every month from 2 to 5 PM. There's usually plenty of parking and there's beer and companionship.

It went well. There were about 85 RSVPs--so many that we exceeded the legal capacity of Peking and had to move to the pier. We had participants from as far away as Norfolk, VA. One of the highlights of the event was that we were encouraged to share our memories of Peking, as well as our songs. Mystic was represented. There were two songs dedicated to Peking and her time at South Street. [I believe they were written for the occasion.]

By the way, no beer but plenty of water and soda were available, courtesy of the museum.

According to the museum director, there will be a $3m net infusion of cash to South Street in addition to the fact that Peking will no longer have to be kept operable. The exhibits and artifacts will stay at South Street.
