Charles Towne Landing's replica of a 17th century trading vessel, Adventure, has been completed and launched in Rockport, Maine and will be put through its paces before and expected November arrival in Charleston.
The 53-foot ship is a replacement for the one designed and built in the 1970s, that one eventually sank in 2004 while it was docked at Charles Towne Landing State Historic Site.
Update October 11: You can track the ship's progress on the S.C. State Parks' site. They've also got loads of video and pictures of the ship.
