Pacific Time Machines:
Recent Replicas & New Traditional Vessels

Now available exclusively from the Maritime Museum of San Diego:

Modern versions of old wooden ships, boats, and canoes have blossomed around the world in the past half-century. Pacific Time Machines is a wide-ranging survey of articles about many of those in the Pacific, from 1913 to 2005—each written by the designer or another involved in the project. Subjects range from HMS Rose and its re-creation as HMS Surprise for the movie “Master and Commander,” to the schooners Californian and Lynx, to Hawaiian voyaging canoes, feluccas, Chinese junks, and Chumash Indian board canoes. Authors include renowned naval architects Melbourne Smith and Phil Bolger, and Hawaiian canoe navigator Nainoa Thompson.
