Seattle PI: Niña restores history

A replica of the Niña, one of Christopher Columbus’ three ships that carried him across the ocean blue, will discover Seattle’s shores Wednesday.

The ship, along with its captain and crew, will be available to the public from Thursday through June 23.

Seattle is one of 400 ports the Niña has visited in its 16 years at sea. Built completely by hand using historic documents as blueprints, the ship was named “the most historically correct Columbus replica ever built” by Archaeology magazine.
