Re: I saw the USS Constitution under sail!

Sorry if I appear negative . It is my love of her that fuels my angst . I just believe strongly that she should be sailed as she was intended to sail . Very little of her is 215 years old & to what purpose ? She is still a commissioned naval vessel & as such she should sail as such . If she's not going to " live " .......then let her die . A 17 minute cruise under 4 of her 36 sails is not a cruise....it's an insult . 3.1 knots ???? I wish I was a tree !
