Pics from the Morgan Launch

Rather than attend by land, Northeast & Daily Boater correspondent Sean McQuilken decided to attend by kayak. Here is his report…

Mystic, Connecticut: Apparently about 125-150 other people had the same idea. There was a steady stream of kayaks, canoes and paddle boards heading towards Mystic Seaport from the launch ramp. Vessels of all sizes and types attended the launch. Visiting by water we were able to see the launch very well and hear most of the speeches. Unfortunately we couldn’t see the actual christening but I was able to watch it online afterwards. Below are a few photos I took.

Water “fireworks” cooled the crowd.
