Skeletonic Ketch

Ship's Ribbing, Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site, Charleston, SC

On display at Charles Towne Landing is the skeleton of a ship's hull. A completed and working version of the ship, called the Adventure, is a floating classroom docked nearby. It resembles a 17th century coastal trader, a ketch that would have carried provisions and even livestock in its hull during the era of the early English colony of Charles Towne.

    Hmmm did they use ketches to import ketchup from America? ;o)
    Heinz, we call them "ketch"?

  14. Patterns make great compositions - especially patterns that also utilise the play of light, makes one great image.
