The Charles Morgan is the pride of the Seaport. This summer it was hauled and a major overhaul begun. The Morgan is the oldest sail whaling ship in the world and the Seaport hopes to have it on the high seas after the work is done.
Some engine smoke a bit when they start up!

NEMES member Dave Bono is re-creating this 1890's engine from photos. It was the "ohhh, ahhh" engine at the show with other outboard enthusiasts gathered around like little kids.
New this year was the pool for model boats to operate in.
This is Rich Hubbard's launch. The right hand photo show his HasBrouck #8 engine that he built for the boat..
