    Re: Anybody recognize the whaleship?

    Stern looks a lot like CW Morgan but I am guessing that like the Bounty in the 50's this whaler was specially built by the company to meet the need. 

    As I understand it, Morgan is no longer sea worthy and doesn't take to sea anymore.  and barring any other working whaler they'd have to supply their own or genrate one on a computer for the long shots. 

    Look at how the computer generation made All is Lost the movie is turned out to be. 

    Aside, there is a wooden frame boat builder in Salisbury MD that might have been called upon to build a boat like this.  Recenlty the yard built a full-sized Mississippi Stern Wheeler for the Casino trade now plying the Mississippi River. 

    The company is called Chesapeake Shipbuilding http://www.chesapeakeshipbuilding.com/ and the front page of the site shows pictures of the boats they've built.

    The river boat is figured prominently.
