A goal list posted at the Commercial Street 19th-century freight shed has two items concerning pinnace Virginia replica construction in Maine in 1607. For Dec 22, at the top is the completion of the small sailing ship’s hull planking and deck framing.
Many spaces at the bottom, for 2020 June 7: launch day. “This means that the ship will float at that point; thought it will not be ready to sail 100 percent, but it will be most of the way,” said vice president of Maine’s First Ship Jeremy Blaiklock, during an interview on July 7 at the freight shed. The hull is complete nearly 75 percent.
