Lady Washington our State Ship

There are many great clipper ships and clipper ship replicas to talk about, but I couldn't in my right conscience forget the Lady Washington! After all, she has been declared the official ship of the State of Washington -- my home state! :-)

The original Lady Washington was the first American ship to visit Hong Kong, Honolulu and Japan. A full reproduction of the original built in the 1750's, the new Lady Washington was launched in 1989.

Many of you may not know that the Lady Washington was the star of the show for the Pirates of the Caribbean! She was the Black Pearl - of course, but that was not her first appearance in movies. Be sure to sail on over and read about the Lady Washington!
