Center for Wooden Boats, R-boat Pirate, Seattle, WA
Pirate is the flagship of the collection at The Center for Wooden Boats, Seattle. Since her rechristening in 2005, she has become the center of a new focus at CWB on Pacific Coast yachting and boatbuilding. A museum-quality restoration using techniques and materials as close to original as is humanly possible, Pirate is now sailing and regularly accommodates the public for weekend sailing and interpretation of early pleasure boat construction on Lake Union. Pirate is significant to northwest maritime history for being the best extant example of the R-class, the adoption of which in this region is a very interesting and complex story. She won the National Championship in the class in 1929. A national landmark, Pirate is on the National Register of Historic Properties and the Washington State Historic Register.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
