Lady Wash. Group Launches New Web Site

The Grays Harbor Historical Seaport Authority, owner of the Lady Washington and the Hawaiian Cheiftain, launched a new website today. Executive Director Les Bolton says the website will all aspects of the organization, including the vessels, the facilities, and the programs. The not-for-profit GHHSA is an educational organization that owns and operates the Lady Washington, a replica of an 18th-century trading ship that visited the coast of Washington State. The Hawaiian Chieftain is a steel-hulled replica of a typical European merchant trader of the turn of the nineteenth century. Her hull shape and rigging are similar to those of Spanish explorer's ships used in the expeditions of the late eighteenth century along the Washington, Oregon, and California coasts.
