No Wake zone

Standby for heavy seas

That moment when you were trying to weigh anchor but the tugboat captain is ignoring the no wake zone.

חנוכה שמח Happy Chanukah!

חנוכה שמח  Happy Chanukah!

We wish you a peaceful and joyful time with family and friends on this final day of Chanukah!  Remembering the miraculous deliverance of our people from the tyranny of the majority, those who would compel us to abandon our faith.  חג שמח

Happy Thanksgiving!

We were devistated to learn of the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh PA on This past Shabbat. Our prayers are with the families affected. המקום ינחם אתכם בתוך שאר אבלי ציון וירושלים

Ahoy! All ye history buffs, salts, swabs, digital sailors and lubbers!

Welcome to The Unicorn Scuttlebutt!  We’ll be posting regular updates here concerning the latest developments with the ship.  We’re currently on year two of our extensive refit and we’re sure everyone will be pleased with the end result.  We’re learning a lot about the ol’ girl along the way, and taking the challenge head on!  It’s a rewarding process and let’s face it… there’s nothing quite so magical as getting out in open water under a stiff breeze on an easy swell!  Feeling her decks come to life beneath your feet and her rigging full with the energy of the wind on a broad reach!  Well all of this jawin’ is getting me inspired so I’d better get off my tail and back to bringing this project a little closer to the finish!  No ship is meant to just sit at the dock and we’ve got a lot of work to do before we’re ready to cast off lines!  Make sure to bookmark our page and follow us @TallShipUnicorn on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter!  Fair winds to you all until next time!
