The vessel changed hands several times after Creamer's voyage. It served as a training vessel for the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland for a while and was then sold to someone in Great Britain. From England, the
Globe Star went to the West Indies and finally returned to America. The last owner sent me
the following ten pictures of its final days.
The webmaster took these pictures of the Globe Star in a Raleigh, N.C. scrap yard in 2004.
I spoke with the owner about a possible rescue and he offered to donate the vessel if it could be
made into a memorial. I contacted many individuals and organizations, but no one had the time or
money to invest in such a project. Steel and aluminum prices were high and the boat was eventually scrapped.
After his return and retirement to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Marvin
bought the 17-foot Globe Star II
