Port Townsend: Tall ship getting a Disney makeup job

PORT TOWNSEND — In the Port of Port Townsend Ship Yard, Lady Washington skipper Brad Sousa joked that the crews from Disney were “ruining” the new paint job the 112-foot brig had just received days earlier.

In fact, the Hollywood workers were just “aging” the new coat of paint the vessel had gotten to make the 1780s replica look even more authentic.

The new navy, blue and cream colors of the boat were just part of the work done in the last two weeks to ready it for its appearance in the Disney movie “The Pirates of the Caribbean.”
