Boothbay Harbor.  There must have been some kind of event in progress, because there  were a few tall ships and many classic wooden boats.

The WoodenBoat Show was at Mystic this year, as it's going to be next year, so maybe some were traveling around before or after. I attended one in Rockport a ways back. Nice town.

I think they may have standardized on Mystic at some point. It used to bounce around, Chesapeake etc.

Have you ever been to the wooden boat museum in Clayton, NY?  That place is really fantastic.  I spent a while talking to a guy restoring a mahogany behemoth and it was just fascinating.  Ask those guys the right questions and they'll really get into it.

No, thanks I'll add it to my list. Is it anywhere near Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome?
ETA: ah, no.

Well they'd make some nice additions to a HUdson valley road trip.... unless AMTRAK runs connecting them...

I was on the Bounty at the 1964 World Fair in New York. It was a true bummer to learn of the loss.

Ha! Was there in 64' as well.. what a loss of a great ship. RIP for the two crew.

Condolences to those affected.  

Pretty bizarre that three people reading this thread were at the '64 World's Fair.

You're all checking out the condition of your spaceships up on those poles?
