Captain Richard Bailey recently posted a sketch by Scott Kennedy of what the SSV Oliver Hazard Perry will look like under sail. Click here or on the thumbnail to go to the blog post. ”Scott has made paintings and drawings of the sea and ships since the mid sixties and many times has been hailed as the “Mariners Artist”. Known by many for his numerous illustrations in books and magazines, his work captures both modern-day and historic maritime subjects on East and West Coasts of the United States and around the globe.” Click here to see more of Scott Kennedy’s work.
Captain Bailey also recently posted on how one one can view the progress of the ship as she is completed in Narraganset Bay Shipyard. Click here to see the photo blog of the steady progress on Rhode Island’s Tall Ship. When completed in 2014, the 196’ three-masted, square-rigged tall ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry will be the largest civilian training vessel in North America and the first ocean-going, full-rigged ship built in the United States in more than 100 years.
