Star of India

The Star of India is the world's oldest seafaring ship and one of many boat attractions in San Diego. Built in 1863 at Ramsey Shipyard in the Isle of Man, it was an experimental design utilizing iron instead of wood.  Launched as Euterpe, a full-rigged ship named after the Greek goddess of music, the ship's initial voyages involved some rough sailing.  Her first trip included a collision and mutiny. She came face to face with a cyclone  in the Bay of Bengal on her second journey. Her topmasts cut away, she barely made port. Following that, the first captain died on board and was buried at sea.

Linda, is this ship always docked in San Diego? We go down there about once a year, and I would love to see it.  My father was a yacht caulker, and he used to caulk similar ships in Camden, Maine.  I would love a tour of this one!

She goes out to sea once in a while, usually just when it's a big day like 4th of July.  I'd love to visit Maine one of these days,
