CITY OF EDINBORO - planned appearance
Contributed by Excelsior Trust
Original elevation and sail plan of CITY OF EDINBORO
This is an impression of how CITY OF EDINBORO will look like after her restoration is completed.
Below decks she will be fitted out so that she can spend as much time at sea as possible. This is so that her structure will be regularly doused in timber-preserving salt water. This is the formula applied by the Excelsior Trust to ensures that the knowlege of sailing and maintaining large commercial ketches is retained as well as the artifact itself.
As one of the largest ketches in existence the greater space available will make her a very comfortable and a supremely seaworthy example of Victorian craftsmanship.
