Replicas of Columbus' Ships to Dock at Beaufort
BEAUFORT, N.C. (AP).- Replicas of two of the ships that Christopher Columbus sailed to the New World are going on display in North Carolina.

The "Nina" and the "Pinta" are scheduled to be open to the public at Beaufort on Friday. The ships will be docked at the North Carolina Maritime Museum Pier until their departure on May 23.

A statement from the Columbus Foundation says the "Nina" was built completely by hand and without the use of power tools. The "Pinta" was built recently in Brazil to accompany the other ship.

Both ships will be touring together as a "sailing museum" to educate the public and school children on a "caravel," a Portuguese ship used by Columbus and many early explorers.
