Log Number: MA-245836-OMS-20
Mystic Seaport Museum will restore its 1921 fishing schooner-L.A. DUNTON-a National Historic Landmark vessel and one of the last surviving examples of its kind. The project will involve removal of the vessel's interior joinery, cataloging and storage of the joinery for future re-installation, and documentation of the entire process. The work will preserve the vessel's design and structural integrity and be performed by the museum's Preservation Shipyard with the support of two students from the International Yacht Restoration School who will join the project team for a 12-week internship. Progress will be captured on video for podcast and other forms of distance learning to further expand the project reach.
