I can draw clipper ships better than build them out of shapes. But another submission inspired me to reconsider. It was a challenge, but I'm happy enough with it. The clipper was assembled using an image of 'The Lightning,' a clipper ship designed by Donald McKay, who is world known for his clipper ships, and his shipyard was mostly along the inner harbor in East Boston. There is a monument about him on Castle Island. These ships set speed records and, of course, relied on charts and navigation aids (sextant, compasses, for example).
