Not the Bounty

Today at the western end of Carquinez Strait, had to wipe my eyes to make sure I was seeing straight. No, it wasn't HMS Bounty (3-masted fully-rigged ship) but instead a brigantine.



It's the Lady of Washington on its way to Rio Vista, and is a copy of the first USA ship to explore the eastern Pacific Ocean.

Re: Not the Bounty

I've spent some time on the Lady Washington. She and Hawaiian Chieftain stay at our marina regularly. She's a beaut, and they love to use those cannons.

Lol, Colreg disputes solved fast; the vessel with superior firepower always has right of way. Nice ship, though the paintjob imho doesn't suit. Don't tell them I said that....

Re: Not the Bounty

Paint job doesn't suit!? It's the Nelson Chequer! What other paint job could it possibly have?
