Charles W. Morgan Update

Charles W Morgan at Round Hill, by Clifford Ashley. From NBWM - Kendall Collection

The repairing of a whaleship was once a daily occurrence in Massachusetts and Connecticut. Now it  is such a rare event that it’s worthy of print and video stories, as reported by Sharma Howard of the Norwich Bulletin.

The Charles W. Morgan, the centerpiece of Mystic Seaport’s exhibits, is undergoing a major restoration.  Although this is still a sore subject for some area residents, it is good to know that the ship is well cared for and will be sailing once again.

Locally and someday soon we hope the same can happen for the schooner Ernestina.

  1. I love seeing this Clifford Ashley painting. I have put up two in a series of three posts about the restoration of the Morgan as seen through the eyes of a volunteer working on her. Find it here:
