The tall ship Adventuress won an online vote today for a share of a $1 million historical preservation grant that could net the schooner $125,000.

Nate Cole-Daum, spokesman for the American Express Partners In Preservation Seattle-Puget Sound Initiative, said the ship will get the full amount it requested because it won, edging the Seattle Town Hall.

Earlier Wednesday, the schooner Adventuress had an extremely slim lead for the top spot over the Seattle Town Hall in the American Express Partners In Preservation Seattle-Puget Sound Initiative.

Both showed a 19 percent share of the vote as of 6 p.m. Wednesday, but the Adventuress was listed first, indicating that it had more votes than its closest rival.

Supporters of the Adventuress sought the $100,000 prize to renovate the schooner’s stern.
