The Tallest of Tall Ships

In the 2014 Autumn issue of Sea History Magazine, (you can access all issues by scrolling down HERE)  Captain Walter Rybka wrote about his ranking of the most historically significant American vessels. The first three are naval vessels, the USS Constitution, ex USS Olympia and ex USS Constellation. The fourth? Ernestina-Morrissey!  ( The article was published just before the name change)

Check what Captain Rybka wrote below, or better yet, get lost in the past issues of SEA HISTORY , the magazine of the National Maritime Historical Society, a long time supporter of Ernestina-Morrissey!
