Former Whaling Ship ReLaunched

Charles W Morgan

The country’s last wooden whaling ship is back in the water at Mystic Seaport. Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy was on hand as the Charles W. Morgan, formerally docked in New Bedford, was lowered back into the water Sunday following a five-year, seven-million-dollar restoration project. The ship was re-christened by a descendent of the ship’s namesake Charles Waln Morgan, 172 years to the day it was first dropped into the water. The 113 foot ship will embark on a new voyage next summer, making numerous stops in Connecticut, Rhode Island and in New Bedford Massachusetts.
