Whaleship Charles W. Morgan Arrives in Vineyard Haven

Any time one of Mystic Seaport Museum’s major vessels is moved there is considerable angst in the administration and those of the Shipyard staff who are responsible for the care and conservation of the Museum’s historic watercraft collection.   Moving the CHARLES W. MORGAN – a National Historic Landmark and America’s oldest documented ommercial vessel (USS CONSTITUTION is America’s oldest documented warship) — carries with it additional mental stress and emotional duress even if the vessel’s movements are confined to the Mystic River between her berth and the Museum’s shipyard. Only after the MORGAN is secure in her new location does anyone breathe a sigh of relief.
