At the edge of Canton, Ohio behind a row of old shopping areas, is a building that at first appearances is a vacant factory. As you drive up you see a small sign that says ‘Blue Water Majesty Museum’.
Once you enter and meet Larry Pulka, the owner and craftsman, you see it is much more. For more than 40 years Larry has built from scratch model ships. These ships are built just like the real thing, starting with the skeleton and beyond.
The display area is well done, with display cases and backgrounds very professionally done.
Most are scale sailing ships.
Each ship has details such as lifeboats, railings and masts. All are built out of exotic woods, using different woods to represent the various colors.
Larry goes into such detail that he has made tiny wood nails that are used extensively.
Further detail is shown in the peripherals on the ship.
If you find yourself in Canton, Ohio it is well worth a visit to go see Larry and his amazing ships.
