Charles W Morgan

Mystic, CT

The Charles W Morgan is pictured here sitting on the lift dock at Mystic Seaport.  Built in 1841 in New Bedford, MA, the Morgan is the last surviving wooden whaling vessel.  Over the last four years, she has been completely restored and although there is much work left to be done, by this time next year, she'll be ready take her 38th voyage to historic whaling ports throughout New England.  Tomorrow, on the 172 anniversary of her launch in New Bedford, the restored vessel will be launched once again.
