On Thursday, April 18, the New Bedford Whaling Museum will feature a lecture titled “The Charles W. Morgan and Our Yankee Whaleboat Project” presented by Quentin Snediker, Mystic Seaport Shipyard Director and Bill Womack, owner of Beetle, Inc.

Their illustrated program will give the inside story of Mystic Seaport’s massive restoration of the whaleship Charles W. Morgan, and plans for her epic sail to New Bedford on July 4, 2014. Bill Womack will discuss the construction of the Yankee whaleboat, funded by Whaling Museum supporters, which will swing from the davits of the Morgan for the next 170 years. Donors to the whaleboat project receive free admission to this lecture.
