"Now, Show Me That Horizon"

Such are the inspiring words with which Captain Jake Sparrow concludes Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Now it appears that part of that horizon will be reached via Aberdeen, Washington's Grays Harbor Historical Seaport. Riggers there are busy constructing masts and spars for the sequels, just as they did for the first movie. The attention to detail and authenticity is impressive.

The Seattle Times has the full, fascinating story along with details on the ship Lady Washington and Seaport director Les Bolton.

Thanks to Peter McCracken for the heads up on this story!
