4 The Hobby Of Ship Construction

The Hobby Of Ship Construction

Posted on June 8, 2011 by kulichik

In the modern era of fast vehicles, speedy trains and transatlantic flights no one remembers that many years ago travelling across the sea was the only way to reach the remote place of destination…

Even today humans use the huge water space to transport goods though the times of ship domination have fallen into oblivion. Fortunately, not everyone is ready to forget the history and heroic sea voyages of our ancestors willing to investigate the world even at the cost of their own lives. Some enthusiastic people search for abandoned ship drawings, build vessels and go to risky expeditions following the great investigators of the past. Russian revival of traditions is closely connected with the name of Victor Dmitriyev who lives in Petrozavodsk.

Petrozavodsk is located in Karelia in Northern Europe. In May Onega Lake, one of the biggest lakes in Europe, is still covered with snow. It’s cold there. The sky is covered with black clouds.
A historical shipbuilding club “Polar Odyssey” is located here.

    Those are some pretty awesome wooden boats. Jack Aubry would have been proud to sail one.

    Norwegian and American flags? That’s odd, but I guess they’re part of a seafaring history.

    I worked for a shipyard on the Lahave River. And I can tell you there is nothing finer than sailing a wood planked ship. Ahh good times :) The only thing about the North Atlantic is they can get a little coarky. Thats where concrete ballast comes in! Cheers!
