Sailing Ship Jeanne Johnson visiting Providence July 2003

I photographed the Jeannie Johnson, a 3 masted barque during her visit to Providence in July, 2003. My webshot archive of photos is here.

The Jeanie Johnston is a stunning replica of a 19th century sailing ship, one of the last before the steam ships took over. Her construction was completed in 2002, and she now operates as a Sail Training vessel, a Famine History Museum and a Corporate Entertainment venue.
Length : 45m (148ft)
Beam: 8m (26ft)
Draft: 4.2m (14ft)
Displacement: 510 tonnes
Rig: 3-masted barque, with 4-square sails/mast, and single topsails.
