Through the Bridge

Mystic, CT

With the Mystic River Drawbridge raised, the Charles W Morgan had no problems navigating through the channel.  The ship is 113 feet long and 27 feet wide.  The tallest mast rises 110 feet above the deck.  I find it amazing that the ship was built in only 7 months without any written plans.  The shipwrights back in those days just knew how to build these ships.


  1. I envy you being there when the Charles W. Morgan passed through the Mystic bridge. I was not aware that it is going on a voyage. Bon voyage, Charles!
