Tour of the SSV Corwith Cramer in Woods Hole This Sunday

SEA, the Sea Education Association, of Woods Hole is back in town and hosting a tour of their beautiful SEA Semester ship, the Corwith Cramer.  The Corwith Cramer is used as a teaching vessel for environmental and ocean-related programs,  and travels the world.

As you drive into Woods Hole via Main Street today, the village is teeming with vacationers. The Woods Hole Library is busy with the Annual Used Book Sale. The ferries go to and fro through the thick fog loaded with passengers. And amidst the general flurry of activity, you can spot Corwith Cramer's two rigged masts rising tall and stately above the Steamship Authority ferry office. 

Corwith Cramer, a steel hulled brigantine constructed in Spain in 1987, lays alongside the MBL's Bigelow dock ready to be boarded and explored by curious folks. The time?   Tomorrow, Sunday, between 2pm-4pm.  I will be there!
