Noank Historical Society's Emma C. Berry Model Kit Build
Larry Jacobsen and Roger Hambidge, shown with the EMMA C. BERRY ship model kit from Model Expo, licensed by Mystic Seaport, the current owner of the vessel. Roger will build the model for the 2016 exhibition at Noank Historical Society, on the 150th anniversary of the launching of the EMMA C. BERRY, which was built at the Palmer Shipyard, in Noank. The model kit was donated to the Noank Historical Society for this purpose by the family of Victor Burdick, to honor his memory. Roger will provide photos of the work as it progresses.
