A new name… Ortolan

Historical Naming Inspiration

Hey- Captain Russ here:

Our name, The Pearl, only lasted one day.  Looking thru old genealogy notes which my father had spent over ten years researching, I found what I was looking for.  An amazing tale of a relative who back in 1849, set out from Maine & headed to California, encountering all sort of hardships including being chased by pirates!  The name of the schooner was Ortolan & will live on again.
