We have a video that includes a famous Essex side launch and will try and provide more information about this unique event in future blogs. Above are some great shots just posted by photographer Dan Tobyne and we also found a great video of the Isabella from 2006.  It is derived from the time-lapse photos taken by Steve Hastings ending with the launch of the Isabella. The same will be done for the Ardelle when she is ready to make her big splash..in just a few short weeks. Check out this video here http://www.metacafe.com/watch/1148149/the_essex_built_schooner_isabella/ and today's time lapse photo of the Ardelle
