The replica of the 65-foot-long, 18-foot-wide Nina was built by about 20 men by hand without electricity or modern tools, according to Nina captain Stephen Sanger. Nina construction took 2½ years and was completed in 1991. Replicating the 85-foot-long, 24-foot-wide Pinta took about three years and was completed in 2005. Stephen Sanger said some electrical tools were used. The replica Pinta was built bigger than the original to accommodate up to 100 passengers for day trips.
