New Video: Installing the Whiskey Plank

This fall, a major milestone of Mayflower’s restoration was completed: the installation of the “whiskey plank,” in this case the last hull plank below the wale. Reaching this goal means that 182 planks have been fastened on, allowing the team to remove the horizontal steel I-beams that have to this point been helping to support the structural integrity of the ship while multiple areas have been worked on simultaneously.

Congratulations to the restoration team!
