New pictures of our 118 year old sail boat.

I managed at last to get this collection of pictures of Vega up so they can be shared. I will put one here and the link to the rest so I don't jam up space here. Besides it took me forever to figure out how to get them on our server. I really hope you like them we are pretty proud of the old bird. The rest are at Images of the Historic Vessel Vega | sailvega

Wow, that is one beautiful sailing machine. It is in amazing shape for being over 100 years old. I really think that is a great cause you guys are working for and actually using the ship to deliver cargo and helping people in the process. I can only imagine what its like cutting through the waves on a vessel like that.

Really glad you like it we work all the time to keep her in good shape. The idea is so she can last another 100 years. If you want to see more the website is at Historical Vessel VEGA

Very nice!
