what's 200 years?

I run a Gunboat 60, and while docked in Annapolis this week, the Pride of Baltimore 2 came in and tied up next to us. We got a kick out of similarly ridiculous bowsprits/lengeron as well as similar mast rake angle – but that’s about where the comparisons ended.
Crazy to see 200 years (the Baltimore Topsail Clippers came to fame during the War of 1812) in naval design and construction advances contrasted side by side. -pyrat.
