Welcoming the Fuller Shallop – Companion Vessel to Mayflower to Hull
June 14 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The Fuller Shallop, a restored replica of the original shallop on board the Mayflower, and now a complement to the restored Mayflower II, is scheduled to arrive in Hull on Tuesday, June 14. The 33-foot, open vessel will tie up at Pemberton Pier for public viewing and for discussions and demonstrations by the Captain and crew until 6:00 pm that evening.
Following public viewing, the Captain and crew will then be available at Shipwreck’d Restaurant for discussions with interested visitors from 6:00 to 7:00 pm followed by a 30 minute talk and slide show on the patio. Shipwreck’d will be open all day for meals and beverages as you enjoy your visit to the Fuller Shallop, and they invite you to stay a while longer to watch the sunset on Hull Bay. The shallop will depart Hull on Wednesday morning.
The original shallop was carried on board the pilgrim ship Mayflower, intended for use in exploring the surrounding waters and did so up through Boston Harbor and farther north. Plimoth Plantation built this replica of the 33′ vessel many years ago and over the past two years it has undergone a refit at Lowell’s Boat Shop in Amesbury. As part of the vessel’s reintroduction in Plymouth, the shallop will be touring several ports as they head back home to Plymouth.
