My favorite ship was the Friends Good Will.  It's a sloop-rigged vessel.  The original vessel was built in 1810 and was used for merchant shipping.  During the war of 1812, it came to an american port that had been taken by the british.  The american flag was still raised at the fort and the ship went to the fort.  The british took the vessel and renamed it the Little Belt.

The maritime heritage festival was recently and it was the first time i had seen traditional sailing vessels in person.  I toured the Madeline, and the other three vessels went on a quick sailing tours throughout the day, but i did not want to spend $25 for a one hour boat ride.  I found out the Denis Sullivan is only a half-hour drive from where I live.  The Sullivan leaves for florida next month, but next summer i could volunteer to help maintain the vessel and possibly sail in it.

Those pics were from their ships' websites. I didn't think i'd have to resize those. :imperialguard_commander1:

I'm very proud to see the ship of my hometown of South Haven, the Friends Good Will! Why wasn't Brig Niagara there? I was planning my first ship MOC to be loosely based on her.

Ooh, the Madeline is a beautiful ship!   Reminds me of my 'Terror of the Caribbean' ship MOC.   ~SR~

Cool :pir-classic:  The gap in the fore topsail (?) of the first picture is strange/interesting, I've never seen that before. Did you also walk on one of those ships?

I got to go on the Madeline. Not below deck though.

Here's me steering the vessel (while it was "parked" :blush: )
