Elizabethan Galleon

This is a cutaway illustration of an Elizabethan era galleon.  Bounding Main's crew wears garments that reflect this time period.  The Dreadnought, a smaller version of this galleon design is available for upper deck tours at the Bristol Renaissance Faire during the summer season.  It is owned and managed by Mike and Janet Breza.   More information is available here.

Note that the Dreadnought was used on the cover of our third CD, Going Overboard.
