He later served as 2nd mate on the clipper La Escocesa (1884-5), obtained his master's certificate in 1887, but gave up sailing to become a merine artist in 1891. He mostly painted full-rigged sailing ships - the Arabella and La Escocesa seem to heve been the two of which he had direct experience. reply Your Stories Your name * E-mail * Post your story * Submit Leave this field blank Share this Page Share this ship with your friends and followers online.
