Roseway returned to the water at Mystic Seaport Museum
Mystic — The schooner Roseway was returned to the water Wednesday at Mystic Seaport Museum's Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard.
Roseway, operated by World Ocean School, is wrapping up several weeks of maintenance, including replacing a plank and recaulking seams in the hull, sanding and painting the hull, and crafting new mast hoops.
The schooner is returning to Boston, its homeport, after a winter of educational programming in the Caribbean with students from Proctor Academy as well as a new partnership with the Caribbean Center for Boys and Girls.
The 137-foot vessel was built in 1925 in Essex, Massachusetts.
