A modern replica of an 18th century sailing ship—built to 80% scale—is taking shape on the edge of Richardson Bay. When it is finished, the new tall ship will mostly host educational trips for Bay Area school kids. 

In the video below, Executive Director Alan Olson explains the Educational Tall Ship project in greater detail, while showing the ship's infrastructure as it appeared this past summer.
