What you'll do

Mystic Seaport Museum has a huge collection of historic watercraft that are not on public exhibit. We will meet at the Museum entrance and then head over to a historic velvet mill for a private tour of our nearly 1 acre Watercraft Hall containing over 450 mostly American, mostly wooden, historic watercraft. Oh- and there are also over 300 historic marine engines- steam, naptha, gas, diesel, and outboards! I'll give you a tour of the collection and highlight some of the gems of the collection and the interesting stories behind these historic vessels. Some of the hundreds of boats we will see include the first Laser, FDR's sailboat, Native American dugout canoes, Inuit kayaks, and even a Donzi.

As a commercial mariner for over 20 years I have visited most corners of the Earth on all range of boats. As Vice President for Watercraft Preservation and Programs at Mystic Seaport Museum I oversee our collection of 500 historic vessels, and love to show off our collection- and throw in some sea stories along the way!
