We’ve been watching the building of the replica of Cabrillo’s ship San Salvador by the San Diego Maritime Museum. It is now really looking like a ship. In May 2015 the masts were on the ground. Today two masts are up, the anchors and cannons still on the ground. But the sail maker, the blacksmith, and the 1500ish Indian village are gone. Looks like the final push.
The fence still gets in the way of good photos and it’s hard to get a complete view, but from the freeway the ship is now more than scaffolding and obscure lines and colors. We couldn’t find out the expected launch date but it can’t be to far off.
