Fantastic Barcelona, The Sea Lion Ship

The Sea Lion Ship is My Favorite stop in Barcelona. I am helping restore this Grand Ship. It was first launched on Chautauqua Lake in 1984. In 1992 after financial problems sold to a Group in Buffalo New York. It sank in 1999 in Lake Erie in Buffalo. A Group of Dedicated Divers and many more raised the Ship in 2000. It was floated back to Barcelona where it sat out of the water. Restoration is a slow process but We are now painting the Ship and replacing some of the bad boards on top. The Hull is in A1 condition. It will take maybe a couple Years but hope is to sail Her again.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:My 2nd Home. What a View and Ship
  • Cons:NONE
  • In a nutshell:Stop Bye and say Hello to The Restoration Crew.

    Thanks for writing about Barcelona, NY. My g-parents lived there & I still have relatives there. We stop to view the light house when we're in the area & stop for smoked fish. It's run by a distant cousin. Barb Trautlein, Los Alamos, NM
