I am sure that this is being built to historic standards and styles...but it keeps having a bit of Hollywood aura about it for me.. I walked by the museum craft shop today where they are redoing a 30 foot mast that broke during a bad jibe of our largest sailing ship.
She's a beauty. I love these replicas of old ships.
