Charles W. Morgan Restoration (2009-2013)
As presently conceived, the three-year project will extend beyond the limits of wind and waterline to include lower bottom framing, interior ceiling, partial keelson replacement and stem replacement. Remediation of deformed (hogged) sheer line will also be undertaken. It is anticipated that this work will be sufficient to address the Morgan's major structural needs for the next 20 years.

All work will be completed by using historically appropriate materials and techniques, in accordance with guidelines set forth in the U.S. Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Historic Vessel Preservation Projects.

Throughout this exciting restoration, visitors are encouraged to observe the process in the shipyard.
