Please note at the bottom of the article information about the recent fire on the Cutty Sark, which has resided for years in a graving dock across from London, the last of the clipper ships in existence. Although badly damged by the fire, there is hope for restoration. Since it is not floating, one is able to examine the very fine lines of the hull, virtually a functioning work of art. No wonder those ships were so fast. It is worth a visit to see this ship, so I hope that they can get it fixed.
