282 year old merchant schooner returns to London


#1

East India Trading Company…
Last time it was in London was in 1787


#2

OOPSIE, turns out it’s a replica, Swedish registry, the Gotheborg III. The original ship really was a Swedish East Indiaman, though.


#3

Still looks cool.


#4

In Amsterdam, 2010 … the London pic is from 2015


#5

That’s not a schooner. It’s a ship-rigged square rigger.


#6

So where is the poop deck?


#7

snicker


#8

Yes, from the stern it looks like you’re correct. I guessed “schooner” from the front view alone.


#9

It’s in the rear end, doh. :grinning:
