The first replica of a Baltimore clipper sank on May 14, 1986. A white squall struck the Pride of Baltimore (1) north of Puerto Rico when she was returning from the Caribbean. Winds of 80 knots hit the vessel, capsizing and sinking her. Her captain and three crew died; the remaining eight crewmembers floated in a partially inflated life-raft for four days and seven hours with little food or water until the Norwegian tanker Toro came upon them. But, the Americans promptly built another, gave her the same name, and sent her across the big oceans with teenage crews. Now that the European journalists has got nothing to take their mind off this Corona virus but the antics of the current man in the White house, one should remember that the Americans do indeed live as they preach - freedom above all, and to hell with sophisticated manners, and socialist security. I saw the ship in Fredrikstad, and she really looked genuine, and lofty indeed. She would not have been built and sailed in Europe. If I remember correctly, the Dutch were not even allowed to move their East Indiaman replica on her own bottom a few hundred yards from her place of build to where she was to be exhibited as a stationary maritime object.
