Zebulon Northrop Tilton was a huge cross-eyed schooner captain, born in 1867 on Martha's Vineyard Island, who, it is said, could have sailed the Alice S. Wentworth to Chicago on a heavy dew.

Legends die hard; not only has Captain Zeb Tilton's colorful life afloat and ashore found its place in New England maritime history, efforts to raise funds to preserve his beloved coastwise schooner, the Alice S. Wentworth, started the movement to establish a National Ship Trust in America.
