C.W. Morgan Launched

The Charles W. Morgan Whale Ship was successfully launched on July 21, 2013. Next she will be rigged with spars and sails. Her 38th voyage (the first voyage since its restoration) is scheduled for May of 2014 and will travel throughout New England. She will be adorned with 6 newly built whaleboats, one of which (front and center) was built by the GLBBS class of 2013. Well Done!

2013 Graduation a Grand Success!

1st & 2nd year classes of 2013 enjoy the biggest and most exciting graduation in the history of GLBBS; the keystone being the launching of the whale boat they had built for the Charles W. Morgan whaling ship at Mystic Seaport Museum.  More than 150 guests attended the 11:00 a.m. program on Friday, June 7th, followed by lunch then viewings and rides in the whaleboat and the 2nd-year class's project, the one-of-a-kind Rescue Minor.  Matthew and Martha Stackpole from Mystic Seaport Museum were honored, with Matthew serving as guest speaker.  It was a glorious day!  (Photos courtesy of Kees Prins.)
