Here’s the next picture in the progress of Charles W. Morgan whaleship restoration at Mystic Seaport from our friend Jeff Gold. It took me a minute to figure it out, being an “arty” shot also. I believe it is the aft end of the garboard, or the plank just above it, looking forward. Notice the bungs in the old fastener holes in the ribs. Jeff says the planking is 170 years old, and still not board to death. Thanks, Jeff a.s.
