While working through Carl Swebilus' massive thread on the WoodenBoat Forum, there was a lot of compelling material I had to pass by in order to stay focused on the story of the ongoing work of restoring the CW Morgan (see my previous posts). Carl's material is very rich, and lifts the veil for those of us not privy to 'behind the scenes' at this great resource. One of the most striking glimpses was a view into the sheer immensity of the collection and stores at Mystic Seaport. I felt compelled to share a bit of that here. As the work on the Morgan continues towards a 2012 splash, I will likely update the progress. And I will soon have a first post for the building project on the whaleboats for the Morgan.
