Wonderful!!!

It was great to be able to walk around on the boat itself and see the conditions the whalers had to live in. Although I don't like the idea of whaling they must have been really dedicated men, especially when the seas were rough. One man even lost a leg!

Good for the kids - they will love to climb onboard. This is next to the Museum complex so lots to see.
