Pieces of History Docked in the Port of Rochester

Replica's of Columbus' "Nina" and "Pinta" have been there all week.

This weekend at the Port of Rochester, people had a chance to set foot on a piece of world history.  Replicas of Christopher Columbus' ships, the "Nina" and "Pinta," had been docked at the port all week long.

The Nina is a life-sized replica that took three years to build.  She's been on the water for 22 years.  Her crew says the authenticity makes it invaluable as a teaching tool.

"The ships are very cool themselves," affirmed, First Mate, Gus Kodros.  "We like to show off how a ship like this works.  A lot of people have misinterpreted the history of Columbus, and we're trying to get the story straight."

The boats are leaving the Port of Rochester tonight; their heading to Ohio via Lake Erie.
