Mayflower II Drydock Tour
Monday, April 29, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM (EDT)
Join us for a private tour of Mayflower II, out of the water! Under the expert guidance of the Museum’s maritime artisans and the Fairhaven Shipyard staff, learn about the major restoration and preservation project currently underway for our beloved ship. You’ll begin your visit in the Museum’s Maritime shop with Maritime Artisans Manager Peter Arenstam, who is overseeing the ship’s restoration project. See hand-stitched sails, shipwright’s tools and more before we head to the Fairhaven Shipyard. Once there, you’ll receive a personalized tour of the ship’s exterior from Peter and meet Fairhaven Shipyard’s Kevin McLaughlin (Vice-President of Fairhaven Shipyard Companies Inc.), followed by a box lunch at the Northeast Maritime Institute.
This once in a lifetime opportunity will allow you to closely view the ship in an intimate setting while we continue to rebuild sections of the hull, replace deck beams, and create a new bowsprit, rudder and much more. Lunch and transportation to and from Plimoth Plantation is included.
