Vector art of Old Ships, Boats and Sailing Vessels and Anchor

Old Sailing Ships

by Eric Fritz

in Vector Objects

What do we plant when we plant the tree?
We plant the ship that will cross the sea,
We plant the mast to carry the sails,
We plant the planks to withstand the gales-
The keel, the keelson, and beam and knee-
We plant the ship when we plant the tree.
~ Abbey, Henry; 1842-1911

Hi! I like the poem. That is really cool! Of course, I love the ships! That goes without saying. All of the vectors you post are fabulous! Thank you!

I don’t know if you have heard of “Project Gutenberg”, or not, but, I have found some fairly decent images to download from the books that they have so far. They are out of copyright, so, safe for use. It is here:

I trust all is well with you and yours!

That’s a great tip Su. Unfortunately I haven’t had much luck searching there… so much sand, so little gold 😉

I can use these illustrations in a pendant that I have to sell? I Add color and will modify some things. And another question, If I have to report authorship… Should I put a link to this website or only the author’s name?
Sorry for my bad english!!!!
