Welcome to the 41GALLERY website!
We are pleased to announce our new exhibition with the Nahant Historical Society "Remembering The Vailant" opening Sunday, July 17, 2016 on view until September 15th.
Sometime around 1955 Raymond Palombo, Charles Baxter and Frank McClain hatched plans to build a 80 foot fishing dragger. Built between the Palombo and McClain's homes, this exhibition documents the almost 10 year endeavour of the fishing dragger Valiant. Launch week generated much excitement in Town and nationally being covered by Life Magazine and a representative sent by President Kennedy attending the launch here in Nahant.
“Hundreds of people milled around Marjoram Park until nightfall to watch the progress of the dragger into the water. At dusk, weary men, soaked to their waists finally left it to await the incoming tide.
Former Selectman and Town Historian, Charles Gallery, fired a volley of 12 salutes from his 10 gauge cannon as the boat was christened.
Others began to crowd into Marjoram Park and onto the wharf at 10 p.m. to watch the dragger being lifted off its cradle at high tide. Flood lights from the Swampscott Civil Defense Unit directed beams on the boat.
Boats including that of the Explorer Scouts, nudged the Valiant and at 10:45 p.m., she slipped smoothly out of the cradle. Sirens, horns, cheers and applause rang out. The dragger was guided out to a mooring where it will stay until towed to Gloucester for completion.”
