ahoy This be the upstate New York's 16th century merchant sailor The Sea Lion! she's in pretty bad shape- now- but I have faith she will sail agian! she was built to be sailed in an inland lake, Chautauqua lake, located in western new york. her keel was laid in may of 1977, and she was completed in 198(3?) It was built COMPLETLY authentic to the way 16th century ships were built.

she now sits drydocked in Barcelona new york on the coast of lake Erie. She sank in the lake about 15 years ago and was rescued and started to be rebuilt. Every chance I get I take my harley down to Barcelona to admire her.

She's a beauty. That would be a great setting for a careening camp!

Okay I got a couple of questions... is it unheard of to make a ship with hemlock or is that just stupid? if it isn't then what parts could be made with it?
