HOWB 003 – Pirates of Caribbean wooden ship story

by admin on October 6, 2011



Lady Washington under sail.

In this episode I interview Captain Les Bolton – the executive director of the Grays Harbor Historical Seaport (GHHS).  In 1989, GHHS completed the construction of the replica 112′ brig rigged wooden sailing vessel “Lady Washington”.  In 1758, the original Lady Washington was the first American ship to sail to the west coast of America and began trade with the natives and islanders.  Les talks about the history, construction, and maintenance of Lady Washington, how she was used in the 2003 movie – Pirates of the Caribbean – and other fun stuff GHHS is working on.  Click on green player button above to listen to the interview.

Thanks to you Dan and Capt. Bolton for the great interview. The historical nuggets and imagery of two tall ships passing with full broadsides are magic. I thought I could smell the gunpowder!
