That is the only other surviving iron framed clipper in the world...along with Cutty Sark and City of Adelaide.

But it is also an iron hull.

The cutty sark was almost burnt to the ground, they rebuilt it but nothing original remains.

Which is why our ship is special and unique.

It is almost totally original, other than the usual replaced timbers from wear and tear, and the modifications made when its roles were changed with the prevailing times.

You literally walk on original decking, look through original portholes, and see original copper plating.

It really is the last of its kind.

We have two.

They had a litter a few years ago, so we had 2 parents and 2 babies...and the babies were just like puppies in the way they played. They were delightful.

I saw a red panda at the Calgary Zoo last year when we saw the giant pandas..

Maybe it was just one, I can't remember..

It was entertaining.

They look like a red fox, a raccoon, and an opossum rolled into one.

When I was a kid I always wonder how people build these giant suspension bridges, but then I guess all it matters is they're the marvelous engineering of the Western nations.
