Harold Burnham, DCR Owners Representative for the Ernestina-Morrissey project, presented at a panel for the Tall Ships America Annual Meeting. The theme for the conference was The Way of a Ship: Linking our History, Heritage and Future., with one topic being Historic ship preservation and utilization. The panel discussed Maritime Heritage and included representatives from the USS Constitution, the Schooner Adventure, and the Schooner Ernestina Morrissey, all historic ships undergoing rehabilitation.  Good company for Ernestina-Morrissey!
