Default Nina & Pinta Replicas

The Nina and Pinta replicas built by the Columbus foundation were in this area over the past week (Oneida Landing, Davenport, IA). While marine craft are not normally my interest I thought this might be of interest to both history buffs and tall ship buffs.

Photos:
1. Nina dockside.
2. Pinta dockside
3. Nina departing upriver
4. Nina turning starboard for a downriver destination.
5. Both turning downriver.

Default Two More

1. Oops! They forgot one of their ramps so the Nina is returning for it.
2. Both several miles downriver passing through a swinging railway bridge after sunset.

Thanks. I've looked very closely at the freeboard on the Nina and I agree with you entirely. None the less the Nina's maiden voyage was a 5000 mi. open ocean trip to take part in a movie.
