New Gallery- Replica Columbus Ships

Today, we went to the Hammond Marina to see the Columbus Foundation‘s replicas of the Nina and the Pinta. The Nina is an exact replica, and the Pinta is 50% larger and has some modern amenities.

They were much smaller than I expected, and I certainly can’t imagine sailing them across the ocean! The public was limited to the above decks, unfortunately, but the crew was knowledgeable and happily answered questions. These replicas sail all over the western hemisphere as “floating museums”.
