- Eastern Sails partners with the NEW BEDFORD WHALING MUSEUM!
On November 19, Eastern sailmaker Ron White will begin a "Sail Repair and Restoration Project" at the New Bedford Whaling Museum.
Ron will be repairing a 90-yr-old Chase Boat "Spritsail" from the 1/2-scale model Whaling Bargue "The Lagoda."
Over the next few weeks, this work will be performed Tuesday through Thursday mornings in the Museum's "Lagoda Room."
Using traditional sailmaking methods and materials, the repairs will be implemented as part of a "Live-Exhibit."
Ron will be working closely with the museum's Maritime Curator, Michael Dyer, and exhibit staff.
All stages of the project will be documented with notes and photos, as every effort will be made to replicate the original Spritsail construction.
Our customers and friends are encouraged to visit the Whaling Museum and say "hello" to Ron!
