The San Diego Bay shore land at Spanish Landing on the harbor has a rough covered wooden ship settled on stocks. The San Salvador replica ship worked over with brush strokes bow to stern.
Shipbuilders paint and varnish the discoverer's sailing ship. Work finishing the Spanish Ship to look old, and seaworthy, will end before the September day San Diego grants boarding privileges to the public.
Final touches done on the masts laying on the landing site, and round viewing decks, will make the San Salvador sound, and fully decorated.
An open cabin already looks welcoming atop the planked body on the water treading treasure.
This is a Passage for the TImes.
