On cold days, “picturing” warmer months helps stave off the cold . .  for a while.  But this post is about vessels with this name, one of which is a 1957 passenger vessel that has recently been chosen for some high-and-dry maintenance work.  Actually it’s called Mayflower II, which I’ve alluded to once in this 2010 post. Rick at Old Salt blog recently did a post about Mayflower II in which he refers to the illustrious captain of the vessel on her maiden voyage from Europe to the sixth boro.  Does anyone know whereabouts of photos of her in our fair harbor?  of the ticker tape parade?  But I digress.

Currently you’d have to go to Mystic–not Plimoth–to see this replica vessel.  See the haul out here.

The second photo here comes from Louise on tug Jaguar.  Thanks for photos 1 and 3–7 to Benjamin Moll, pictured on Louise’s photo and whose “photos and musings” you may follow here.  Photos 8 and 9 of Mayflower high and dry in Mystic should be credited to Norman Brouwer, whose most recent book is Steamboats on Long Island Sound, which I need to read soon.   The last photo, which I took in the Savannah River,  shows one of 23 other vessels–according to the USCG registry–named Mayflower.
