Charles W. Morgan Restoration Shipwrights Blog


Recommended Posts

As many of you may be aware, the Mystic Seaport Museum is in the midst of a restoration of the Whaling bark Charles W. Morgan.  Plans are firming up to re-launch the Morgan on July 21, 2013.  The restoration is moving along at a brisk pace.  The Shipwirghts Blog currently has a number of photo's showing the hull planking and beginning of copper plate installation.  While there are some decidedly modern tools being used, it gives a good idea of the challenge of planking a vessel of this size!




Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.

Interesting photos, showing how barely visible things like trunnels and coppering nails  are closeup, never mind at modeling scale.
