••• According to flyers posted on Greenwich, the ship that is applying for a liquor license at Pier 25 is the Sherman Zwicker. Wikipedia says:

The Sherman Zwicker is a 142 feet (43 m) wooden auxiliary fishing schooner. She was designed with a schooner hull similar to her famous sister ship Bluenose, but with a 320 brake horsepower diesel engine installed from the beginning. Both the Sherman Zwicker and Bluenose were built at the same shipyard. The Sherman Zwicker does not have topmasts or a bowsprit. She was built strictly as a working fishing vessel and did not race like the Bluenose. […] Today, she is a fully operational traveling museum that visits the Maine Maritime Museum in Bath, Maine, regularly. She frequently participates in tall ship festivities along the Eastern Seaboard and continues to visit her original home port in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. She is the only Grand Banks fishing vessel that is still operational and seaworthy today.
