  1. It’s missing parts. I don’t remember an engine in the original design…

    • I think there’s a tug out of view. She doesn’t sail as much as get dragged around nowadays.

  2. No top masts, no yards, no sheets, no sails. She looks too much like a hulk.

  3. Wayne–The top masts, the yards, etc. are being restored. So, right now she IS a hulk. They’re going to put them back. Not so very long ago, she was in drydock, to have the keel replaced. Wooden ships take some maintenance.
