A wooden Christmas present. Found this nice boat whilst on holidays down South in Albany, its called the Amity.. has a bit of history..apparently.
The Amity

The Amity sailed from Sydney on 9th November 1826, carrying a party under the command of Major Edmund Lockyer, who had orders to form a settlement at King George Sound.

After a difficult voyage, the first half battling through heavy weather in Bass Strait and the second enduring the summer heat of the westward run, the brig reached Princess Royal Harbour on Christmas Day. heres more [link]

My husband and I went aboard the Amity last year 2012 during the month of June here in Connecticut at the mystic Seaport. It was interesting to look around the ship and read about it's history.  Two of our friends had an opportunity to be in the Amity movie that was filmed here in Connecticut and they were cast as background people riding along on their horses.  They said it was hard work, but was happy to get an opportunity to chat with some of the Celebrities who had acted in the movie.
