Before Ted Lang and his Mainship operation brought in the fill that became today’s Snow Marine Park, this tidal cove became a graveyard for boats of all kinds—like the schooner’s yawlboat in the foreground. Beyond the cove lies John I. Snow’s fleet, with Snow’s Shipyard in the background. (This is where Capt. Jim Sharp’s Sail, Power and Steam Museum and marine railways of Rockland Marine now reside.) The two laid-up schooners are the George E. Klinck (lying inboard against the wharf) and the Charles H. Klinck—near sisters, built three years apart (1904 and 1901), one in Mystic, Connecticut, and the other in nearby Noank.
