Tall Ship Nina at Sunset

Christopher Columbus' replica ship "Nina" docked at the Fishermen's Village Marina, southwest Florida. Without the use of a wheel, the crew steers the ship with a tiller and rudder, which weigh a combined 1,100 pounds. Built completely by hand and without the use of power tools, Archaeology magazine called the ship “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built.” One of three winning photos in the "ships" challenge, May 8/08, The New Academy group,
