The Free China is a historic century-old Chinese sailing vessel on the verge of extinction.  An authentic Fujian junk used during the first half of the 20th century to transport fish and contraband, the Free China has a rich and colorful past.  The junk is possibly the oldest Chinese wooden sailing vessel of operable condition in existence—and the last of its kind.
