         Thanks, Frank.  I'm still in detox for Morgan withdrawals, but they tell me I'm showing signs of progress and recovery.....
         Anyone up for seeing the Morgan sail to Boston for the 2017 Tall Ships show?  It'll happen in Boston for four days as the Mayor has just announced, and besides the Constitution, the Morgan could take the Oldest in the Parade prize..... How much money would the Museum need to put out?   Any figures from the 38th Voyage in yet?

    Subject: [38Talk] Navigate like the Morgan navigators

    The captains, wives of captains, and mates aboard the Charles W. Morgan all navigated by the Sun from its first voyage starting in 1841 to its last whaling voyage ending in 1921. I've got classes coming up at Mystic Seaport, starting in late October, in which you can learn and use today the actual celestial navigation methods employed aboard the Morgan through those long decades. Details below. 
    By the way, it's been just a month since the end of the "38th Voyage", and I intend to post a few messages for 38Talk over the weekend. Just a heads-up...
