Photographer's Note

There are many possible shots within this one but I chose to show the wide view. It was shot in RAW and there is a detail of it in the workshop as well as a close up of the rigging shot the previous week on a sunny day.

The structure to the left is left in on purpose. It is a post and beam building being moved to the location as part of the exhibit. It is a period structure from the start of the 18th century and is being rebuilt using the same hand tools that constructed it originally.

The Salem East Indiaman “Friendship” was launched in 1797. She made 15 voyages during her career to Batavia, India, China, South America, the Caribbean, England, Germany, the Mediterranean, and Russia. Built for the Salem mercantile firm Waite and Peirce in the South River shipyard of Enos Briggs, she ended her activities as an American merchant vessel when she was captured as a prize of war by the British Sloop of War HMS Rosamond in September 1812.

The replica of Friendship was built by the National Park Service using modern materials and construction methods while retaining the appearance of the original ship. This is the “
Friendship of Salem” as she sits quay side in Salem Massachusetts.
