Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Helen Miller Gould was a short lived mackerel fishing schooner. As the first large schooner fitted with an auxiliary engine, she was representative of the shift from sail to engine power. She was designed by Captain G. Melvin McClain of Rockport, Massachusetts, who also designed the Effie M. Morrissey. She was built by John Bishop, during the winter of 1899-1900 at the Vincent Cove yard in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She was launched on March 29, 1900, before a crowd of more than 3,000 people. Captain Jacobs (King of the Mackerel Killers) was on board during the launch, along with Captain G. Melvin McClain, a few other captains, and Captain Jacobs' daughter who broke the wine bottle to christen the ship.
