It appears that the "the last official sailing day of the 38th Voyage" has been re-scheduled for tomorrow. I would love to see the vessel sail one more time, but I am back now south of the Tropic of Cancer. And thank for you for posting your photos from the Mass Maritime Academy. The donation box in one photo refers to the "Amnassador to the Whales". That means the Charles W. Morgan, I think. Does this indicate that the Charles W. Morgan will be sailing among the whales again, as embassies must remain among their constituents?? I spoke with representatives of Mystic Seaport while I was in Boston who said the Morgan would probably not sail again. This is not so much an embassy as a "pilgrimage", isn't it? A gentle apologia and now the vessel retires again to the home port to hibernate.
