Several years ago, Robert and I visited Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. Here we saw the last whaling ship as it was under renovation. She is a stout ship- 105 feet long- able to hold thousands of barrels of whale oil. The Charles Morgan was larger than the Essex, able to carry her 38 crew members on longer voyages to the off-shore grounds. In 2014, she set sail for the first time since 1941. She went on a tour of ports in southern New England.
