I would have loved to have been there.

Friend of mine's son is crew on the Morgan.  He just graduated from ME Maritime, and somehow managed to finagle his way on board.  She's my favorite wooden ship.  I hope the ghost is enjoying the cruise.

I wanted to see less of the whales and more of the boat, looked fantastic

Mystic Seaport has been putting up a TON of video as the Morgan sails in her journey.  Lots of them of the ship.

Meh, it's not real whaling until they're drawing lots to figure out who to eat first.

This is one subject where the Japanese are totally wrong and f|_|cked.  I can only hope they realize how fundamentally in error they are.

That encounter was a fluke.

I wonder if there was a sense or a noticible drop in danger among whales when the American economy switched from whale oil to Texas crude. Assuming a drop off, say, in the 1880s, there had to have been a mature male sperm whale born in the 1860s who lived through to the 1920s. Did he notice the switch? Did he notice a slowly safer Atlantic or Pacific?

Hack Patooey: I hope the ghost is enjoying the cruise.

There is no ghosts aboard her,  but other locations around the grounds, possibly.

Whale Oil was essential for the Apollo program.

Too many boats.

So what, are the whales supposed to be happy to see them? Just accept our apologies? "Hi, don't swim away, we're not here to kill you... this time! Sorry about your grandma."

If I'm a whale, I'd be getting the fark out of there.
