JMS is providing engineering support for the restoration of the MAYFLOWER II

5 January 2017

JMS Naval Architects is providing engineering support to Mystic Seaport of Mystic, CT and Plimoth Plantation of Plymouth, MA. The 30-month restoration effort is taking place at the Mystic Seaport’s H.B. duPont Preservation Shipyard. The organizations, with the help of JMS serving as naval architecture consultant on the project, are working toward restoring the historic vessel’s Certificate Of Inspection (COI) by the summer of 2019 in time for the 2020, 400th Anniversary of the arrival of the pilgrims at Plimoth. The mission of the restoration team is to honor the vessel’s historic structure as much as possible; make replacements in-kind, and only modify where necessary in order to improve the vessel’s strength, longevity, and maintain regulatory compliance. JMS’ work will begin by verifying some of the engineering previously done regarding a steel support structure designed to maintain the vessel’s shape as the work proceeds.
