The Pearl Forrester was Joe Corcoran's original tour vehicle. Nowadays, it's the larger of the SS Pinafore's two launches. Originally a 1963 Volkswagen Type 2 camper van, Joe waved it in 2007 and ran a space tourism business out of his home in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, accruing enough money to purchase what would later become the Pinafore.
Having been a camper before, the Pearl is a roomy and comfortable ride as spacecraft go, with excellent views out the wide windows. The craft's notable quirks include requiring either 1960s music or terrible science fiction movies playing on the rear compartment's entertainment center for peak performance. In general, Corcoran usually puts a DVD of the Woodstock Concert in and lets it run.
