Episode Info:

The Mayflower II is a replica of the original ship that brought more than a hundred settlers from Europe to the New World in 1620.  Built in 1956, she was a gift to the citizens of America from the English as a thank-you for their support during WWII.  Since being delivered in 1957, she has been a focal point at The Plimoth Plantation, welcoming visitors onboard to give them a sense of what life onboard was like.  But after 60 years and 25 million visitors, she was in need of a restoration, and who better to take on the task than the shipwrights at The Mystic Seaport Museum. In Episode 17, we talk to Kate Sheehan of The Plimoth Plantation about the Mayflower II’s history, and Matt Barnes, one of the Lead Shipwrights at Mystic, about the massive undertaking of saving this national treasure.
