Can any one identify these boats?

Bill Matley - July 8, 2009




This past Tuesday July 7,2009 we were returning from Mackinaw Island. We passed 2 of these boats (ships).  Couldn't miss them they came right at me and never made any attempt to change course.  But they are so unique; I think someone will be able to identify who these fine old looking vessels are and why there were 2 of them?

These are replicas of Columbus' ships, the Nina and the Pinta. They have just come up from Central America and are now in Petoskey over the weekend and open for tours. They were in Alpena last weekend and are next heading for Escanaba.
