Tall Ship in port

Gary and dad went fishing and discovered that one of the tall ships was docked at Rio Vist. This is the Lady Washington. It is 112 feet, has 11 sails, and has 4.400 square feet. It currently has a crew of 14 but can sail with a crew of 8. This ship was used in the first Pirates of the Caribean movie. We enjoyed talking to the crew and got to go onboard. During the week-end, people can pay for a three hour tour as the ship sails on the river.
