Sail powered crab boat

With the outrageous price of fuel I thought I would invest in this sail powered gem to do my work in,
Of course this is a reproduction of the Susan Constant at Jamestown, pic taken Thanksgiving Day during our trip to "The Historic Triangle" *which include Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. We camped at Chippokes SP on the other side of the James River.

Sailing, the only way to move across the water!

Every summer they have the "Tall Ships" dock at different spots around the Great Lakes, and they are always fascinating to see.

A nice looking Square Rigger there Crabman!
But I would hold out for a Schooner.

I got to tour that boat with my grandson when we were on the east coast for a vacation. They are really neat.

They would be faster, for sure.

Here is another much smaller Jamestown ship, either the Godspeed or Discovery, I forget which. It must have been a long trip across the Atlantic in this small ship packed with settlers, crew and farm animals in 1607.
