Wow... you're right! I should have known that... I guessed it, but
then thought it didn't look like her. I've only seen her under sail
(also in SD), but way back in 1976.

You saw her under sail in S.D.? That was a trick...

I saw the Star of India sailing in San Diego in 1976. Why is that a
trick?

It don't look anything like it at all. Are you blind Jon?
You must have been lucky with the last boat you bought, because you
have no eye ships & boats.

No I have no ideal, but after a quick glance comparing hulls and rigs
of the two ships ...I know 100% they are not even close.

Ah.... I've never sailed in South Dakota.

I was on the water, sailing on the 4th of July, 1976 for this event:

Finally, in 1976, the fully restored Star of India put to sea for the
first time in fifty years, under the command of Captain Carl
Bowman. She sailed beautifully that day, to the applause of half a
million of her fans, ashore and afloat. The Star of India now sails at
least once a year making her the oldest active ship of any kind in the
world. She is sailed and maintained by a volunteer crew that trains
year-round, keeping not only the ship but also the skills to sail her
alive.
