An exact proportionate picture of the Half Moon, Henry Hudson's boat, and the large modern sailing vessel Preussen. Preussen is the only five-masted, full rigged ship afloat, and with a sail spread of 6,500 square feet of canvas shows the progress made since Hudson entered New York Bay - 300 years ago in the Half Moon, a vessel of 80 tons, 75 feet length and 17 feet width.
