War of 1812 tallship in Ogdensburg

Listen to this story
As of noon today, the Privateer Lynx, a replica of a tallship that carried soldiers in the War of 1812, is docked on the St. Lawrence in Ogdensburg. From now until Sunday evening it will be open to the public, for tours and daily 2-hour sail-aways.

Michael Folsom is the event organizer for the Lynx's trip up the seaway. He knows what he's doing when it comes to the St. Lawrence. He also blogs about the seaway under the name "the shipwatcher." Nora Flaherty talked with Folsom about his fascination with the big ships of the river, and about the Lynx.
