3 Mast Ship

PNW Photo of the Week – Masts, Ropes, and Sails

Howdy everybody! It’s Monday again, which means it’s time to go back to work for the week, for many of us.

But, hey…

It’s only another 5 days of work until the next weekend. Up here in Washington State the family and I tend to get out and about each weekend and explore more and more of our surrounding area. We’ve lived up here a few months now and there is still so much to do and see before the wet season begins.

On a weekend awhile back we went on a little trip to the San Juan Islands. You’ve already seen a few different shots from this trip, but this one is a bit different.

This week’s image is called…

Masts, Ropes, and Sails

There are so many sail boats out here on the Puget Sound. But very few of them are as stunning as this one. This three mast ship is called Lady Washington. You can learn more about this awesome boat here: http://www.historicalseaport.org/ships/lady-washington/

This boat calls Aberdeen, WA home but I spotted it on the docks of Friday Harbor on our San Juan Islands trip.

Here are some fun facts about the Lady Washington:

  • It is 112 feet long.
  • Has about 6 miles of rigging rope.
  • Has 4,442 square feet of sail.
  • And it was one of the boats used in the filming of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

This shot is a fun capture of all of the different rigging and masts. I love all of the different lines constantly leading your eye across the image. It is not hard to believe there are 6 miles of rope on this vessel after seeing this.
