Throwback Thursday: The Mayflower II

Posted by Nick Pizzolato on Thu, Nov 10, 2016 @ 02:02 PM

A few weeks ago, The Mayflower II, a replica of the original Mayflower that is usually docked in Plymouth, Massachusetts, set sail to Mystic, Connecticut. Normally it stays there through the winter months, so that craftsmen can give it a proper winter makeover. Here’s an older picture of the Mayflower II being escorted from Plymouth.

While the Mayflower II usually returns in the spring, this visit to Connecticut will be a little bit longer. According to Wicked Local Plymouth, the replica vessel will spend the next 30 months in dry-dock being repaired and restored and will return in 2019, in time for Plymouth’s 400th birthday.

Have you visited the Mayflower II? Or have you been one of the lucky few that have been on board when it has sailed around Plymouth Harbor? We would love to see your photos and hear your stories. Share them with us at Wicked Local Media Solutions or tweet us @WLMediaSolution.
