Virtual Event: Behind the Scenes at Mystic Seaport Museum’s Shipyard

Mystic Seaport Museum is a 17 acre indoor and outdoor maritime museum located along the scenic Mystic River. An integral part of the Museum is the Henry B. DuPont Preservation Shipyard, where skilled shipwrights work continuously to maintain the Museum’s extensive collection of vessels as well as to restore visiting vessels like Plimoth Plantation’s Mayflower II. Join us Friday, May 29 for a behind-the-scenes look at the process of moving one of these large vessels back into the water after the completion of maintenance work.

Our tour guide will be the Museum’s Vice President of Watercraft, Chris Gasiorek, who will be our guide as the steamship SABINO is launched into the water. A question and answer session will follow. Prior to coming to Mystic Seaport, Chris Gasiorek served aboard a variety of vessles including containerships, tankers, tugs, bulk carriers, research ships, racing yachts, classic yachts, training ships, tall ships, and offshore supply vessels.

Please use the form to the right to RSVP. We then will connect with you to provide all the Zoom details.
