Well, the historical preservation group that sponsored this worldwide tour of this Nina copy claimed that it was built according to the same specifications as the original.  They claimed this was possible due to fact that it was the descendants of the original builders who built this one.  Furthermore, they claimed to have some of the documents detailing specifics in the construction of the original.  Of course, nothing is completely certain since the original ship is not around anymore.  For all I know, they built this ship to resemble the original and are scamming everyone to make a buck...

Best, Noah

According to this page they found a group of shipbuilders still using the same techniques, but it says nothing about surviving documents: http://www.thenina.com/the_original_nina.htm . According to this one: http://www.evgschool.org/Columbus's%20Sailing%20Ships.htm , nobody knows for sure precisely what they were like, which is what I've always heard. My guess is that it's probably a pretty accurate caravel of the right size, with a bit of hype thrown in.

Robert, of course you are right.  It would not be sensible to believe that it is accurate in every detail;  embellishment is sure to occur.  Perhaps our tour guide was a bit overdramatic and decided to alter his speech a little.  I only picked up the generic brochure and listened to two people talk about the ship.  Thanks for going through the trouble of looking up that information!

I have been considering doing some charity work. I believe I know what it will be now. Once this catches on, I believe you will find "health centers" such as this popping up everywhere. Another range of diseases vanquished.

Great photo

Yes, that's what we are like. Shown here by the example of my youngest son, Armin.

Drat ecoli!
Your photo pointed out to me my terrible spelling!  It was supposed to be "Free Mamma Gram" a program I initatied to place women in touch with lost parents by sending a free email for them.   The second part of the poster was just my way of multi-tasking. Wink

Although not something I would seek out as an activity... I found myself in the passenger side of a race car this week.  Shocked  At 140 miles an hour around the track I discovered something new.. I LIKED IT!  Grin

Hi, Robin.  It wasn't so fast, only a Sunday afternoon autocross, with me at the wheel of my beloved 356A entering the frame, caught by a friend with my camera, but I have a good memory, and I think I know how you feel.  At 34, I was just young enough still to fully appreciate it.  The town was Eugene OR, and the organization, which also did rallyes, called itself the Emerald Empire Sports Car Club.  I got the car secondhand.   Never since have I had a sports car (or a boyfriend who was into them...).  Pat L.

Pat! You are a daredevil! I had no idea  Grin

What a beautiful little car!  That must have been a great time. 

Although I throughly enjoyed my day of riding, I don't think I would be one to be behind the wheel- I drive like I am carrying a car full of eggs.  It was after my fourth concusion that my driving became so careful.  Grin

Speaking of daredevil female drivers, I had the opportunity to be at the Indy 500 race where Danica Patrick led for several laps.  We were sure she would pull it off, until she ran low on gas during the penultimate lap... Undecided  She set a record for a female driver and put the guys to shame!  It was a sight to see; also, those indy cars are extremely loud and you can actually feel the vibration as they pass by.

Hey Roland,

If you do such gatherings in the future with pscipio and antoninus, let me know. The drive is only a couple of hours for me.

How did you like Oregon Pat?  I lived in Portland for several years and LOVED IT!!  I visited Eugene several times since my uncle lived there.  That is one of the most beautiful parts of the country.  BTW, do any of you live near Louisville, Kentucky?  I have never actually met a fellow ancients collector.  I have not ever even been to an ancients show.  Not much comes my way here, so I rely on these boards and the internet to whet my collector's appetite.  Cry
