A model of Florence, a "dragger" fishing boat at Mystic Seaport


The original was built in Mystic in 1926


In summer the draggers often engaged in swordfishing


We'll have to get a photo of the model and original together

Aphrodite is a 74' Long Island motor commuter yacht originally built in 1937 to ferry the industrialist, Jock Whitney from his home in Manhasset to Wall Street.


The original fell into disrepair, but was relaunched in 2005 after 45000 hours of restoration

And here's a link to a Youtube video of the Aphrodite:
