"The hull of the Western Flyer, a sardine fishing boat made famous by the writer John Steinbeck. It has been 75 years since Steinbeck and the marine biologist Ed Ricketts sailed the Flyer from California to Mexico — and into literary legend, in Steinbeck's "The Log From the Sea of Cortez." The Flyer has had a hard life since its birth in 1937. But now, the heavily damaged, derelict vessel is being restored as a science and education vessel. The question: Is it more important to get the boat into good working condition, or to capture its emotional and literary value? @davidmryder photographed the Flyer in Port Townsend, Washington earlier this month."
