Well, work on Mayflower II is progressing well here at Mystic Seaport in spite of the weather! The skill and determination of the workers both from Mystic and Plymouth is incredible! Along with everything that is happening down here, Don, George, Dick, Joe, Rick, Natalie and Allen are making excellent progress on spars and rigging in the shop at Plymouth.
The Survey is complete and we are just waiting on a full formal report from Capt. Paul Haley of G.W. Full and Associates. This is what we will use to make longer term plans for the restoration of Mayflower II. Again, this winters work is all about discovery, planning and exploratory surgery, with more in depth futtock and major structural replacement to take place in the full scope of the project.
