Olde Beaufort Seaport

By Kelly

According to reports in Myrtle Beach Online the North Carolina Maritime Museum will being developing a maritime village known as Olde Beaufort Seaport. The village will include a wharf; welcome center; boardwalk and outdoor performance pavilion; a shipyard with marine railway, foundry and sawmill; and halls with exhibits such as a Shipwreck Hall featuring artifacts from Queen Anne's Revenge.

Construction of the Seaport was marked by the arrival of the Meka II, a
half-scale replica of a 17th century pirate brigantine, commanded by Capt. Horatio Sinbad. Captain Sinbad holds what may be the only active privateer commission in the United States. I'll have to check on that one.
