Progress in the Shipyard – October 6, 2020
Bristol Marine’s Shipyard in Boothbay Harbor provided us a deeper look into the day-to-day efforts being made in Boothbay Harbor onboard the Ernestina Morrissey. Their team is working hard each day to make this ship the new standard-bearer for quality in the Tall Ship community. In the attached series of photos you will see progress on the restoration of the Ernestina-Morrissey at Bristol Marine’s Shipyard in Boothbay Harbor. Currently, all work on the Ernestina-Morrissey at the Shipyard is being funded through the generosity of the Lenfest Family.
This Project to rehabilitate Schooner Ernestina-Morrissey, the official vessel of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is being supported by a public/private partnership with funds from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, The H.F. Lenfest Fund of the Philadelphia Foundation, the Hildreth-Stewart Charitable Foundation, The Manton Foundation, the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts - Mary Morley Crapo Hyde Eccles Fund, the City of New Bedford’s Community Preservation Act Program, the Carney Family Foundation, the Island Foundation, other grants and many individual contributions.
