We saw the wooden Friend Ship of Salem and immediately climbed on board. Below deck, we saw all of these sketches of the Friend Ship from 1805 and we wanted to know when it was built. Sadly, the original ship was taken by the British in 1812 (I believe) and this replica was built around 2008. Disappointing fact to learn, but it is a beautiful replica.
