200811 Russian Ship 1.jpg

Captain Sinelnik Sergey prepares to set sail for Detroit. A traveling Russian museum called the Pilgrim (Pomor lodya in Russian), a wooden sail three-mast replica-ship from the 18th century, made a stop at the Wardell Boat Yard to have it's masts raised. The ship traveled the Erie Canal and is setting sail on Lake Erie for a trip to Detroit, Michigan when the weather allows.
