Down to the Seas Again

Nov 4, 2014 · 7 min read

In 2014 I was invited to travel to Boston for a brief spell and join a group of voyagers sailing aboard the last wooden whaling ship in the world — the Charles W. Morgan. Restored to her former functional glory for the first time in nearly 100 years, the Morgan spent three months traveling from port to port on the East Coast. This 20-page travelogue comic documents my trip to Boston, my time sailing aboard the vessel, and my reflections on tall ship culture, authenticity, and adventure.
