The U.S. Brig Niagara - Wood is Wonderful

Last week the Brig Niagara was in Collingwood Ont.  We'd not gone to Collingwood intending see the ship, the Niagara was just a bonus.

U.S. Brig Niagara

 A tall ship is a special creation, they are often reproductions of great sailing ships from the past, some with steel hulls. Niagara is a wooden tall ship, the best kind, in my opinion.  Not only is Niagara a working ship, and work of art but it is also a piece of Canadian/American history. 

  If you even wondered about an interesting wood working job, think about Ship's Carpenter.  If you google search Ship's Carpenter, there are jobs on cruise ships available, who knew that wood work could take you around the world.

  If you ever wondered whether wood was special, look at a tall ship like the Brig Niagara.
