SNEC SPRING WORKSHOP – Mystic Seaport – Mystic, CT

Saturday April 1, 2017

The Southern New England Chapter will hold a Spring Workshop at the Mystic Seaport in Mystic, CT on Saturday April 1, 2017.

As many of you know, the MAYFLOWER is in port undergoing extensive restorations.  Whit Perry, Director of Maritime Preservation and Operations for the MAYFLOWER will give the group a talk on the restoration process now underway – this should be an extremely informative discussion.

We will be able to visit the Watercraft Hall where we will to see the motors, boats, hardware, etc. that is currently not on display in the Museum proper.  Philip Tankard and his staff with be in attendance to give us a brief explanation of what is contained in that building; we will be free to explore the watercraft and engine collection at our leisure.  Following the time allotted for wandering around the collection, lunch will be served at Latitude 41, right on the museum grounds.

Lunch will consist of a buffet of sandwiches, salads, cookies, tea, coffee, soda and good conversation!  Then onto the MAYFLOWER Exhibit!
