||Traditional rig sailing ships from 120'(36.6m) LOA|
She is a replica of the first ship built by Tsaar Peter the Great. Shipbuilding skills which he learned in Zaandam (Netherlands). I learned from o a crew member I talked tone day, that the coulours are imaginary. The one colour they where sure about was the red on the inside of the boat. The red was common in those days on war ships. It helped lessen the battle stress, when crew got hit by adversaries. You wouldn't see the bloud etc. as much...
In those days this ship had a crew of 150, about 5 for every canon + nautical crew.
