<p>Don’t miss your chance to experience this historic ship through the documentary, &nbsp;"Lynx an 1812 Privateer Reborn".</p>

<hr id="system-readmore" />

<p>Woodson K. Woods, executive director at Woods Maritime, is who originally had the vision of re-creating this boat. “I wanted to give something back and a vessel for education purposes was perfect,” said Woods.</p>

<p>“It was a long process. It started in 1997, when I contacted Melbourne Smith in Annapolis, MD. Smith is a expert in restoring period vessels and who also built the “Californian”,” said Woods.</p>

<p>Woods stays to tradition during the building of the ship and it is remarkable to see the life that is given to the Lynx. The sails that will soar through the skies where also created traditionlly and sewn my hand.</p>

<p>As the launch date approaches, the flurry of activity on board heightens. From the pin rail to the cabin paneling, fine craftsmanship meets the eye. July 2001, the day has finally come and sunlight hits the bow.</p>

<p>Learn more about this wonderful vessel during a 20-minute film, which contains a visual history of the Lynx from her construction to her launch.&nbsp;It includes historical images of the War of 1812 and interviews with the Lynx ship building team. This documentary will air February 17th at 10:30 AM, 3:30 PM and 9:30 PM.</p>
