Sea Travel, 1607: Getting There was not Half the Fun.


                                         The Susan Constant replica at Jamestown, Virginia.
                                         Worth a trip to see, along with everything else there.

         The Susan Constant was the flagship of the historic voyage to Virginia in 1607. 

         At 120 tons, she was 111 feet long and 24 feet, 8 inches at her beam.  She carried 71 people across the Atlantic in a voyage that lasted from December 19, 1606, to April 26, 1607. Her smaller sister ships, the Godspeed and the Discovery, sailed with her.
         Nobody had a good time.
