Commissioned by the Columbus Foundation and built in Brazil, this replica of Columbuss ship The Pinta sits dockside on the Mississippi River in Winona, Minnesota on a sunny July morning in 2013. The Pinta is a caravel, a common trading vessel. The replica is 15 feet longer and 8 feet wider than the original, which returned to Spain and subsequently disappeared from history. Caravels, which are excellent sailing ships with a high degree of maneuverability, were used as cargo boats,patrol boats and also as corsairs what we call pirate ships. Along with her sister ship, an exact replica of The Nina, which is also a caravel, The Pinta tours various ports along the Mississippi River. These floating museums give visitors a chance to step back in time and experience living history. Specifications of The Pinta: Deck length - 85', Beam - 23', Draft - 7.5', Tonnage - 101, Sail Area - 3800 sq ft
