New live oak framing members (painted orange) are visible through a gap in planking near the stern of the barque Charles W. Morgan during its multi-year restoration to seaworthy status. Late autumn sunlight that slanted in over the nearby water brought out the woods' natural hues and 175 years' worth of layered paints.

The closer I look, the more comes into view. The shipwright's choice of woods – live oak, white oak, black locust and others – gives me a new appreciation for millennia of sailors' utilitarian aspirations and shipbuilders’ lessons learned.

Then there are the aesthetics of the woods, lines, tars, oakum and hardware that, when combined, create art. A ship undergoing restoration is a potential work of art. Its curves hint at speed or suggest sturdiness. Artful ideal or utility, rarely both simultaneously.

The closer I look, the more I see the big picture. . . of humankind’s irrepressible ambition, restless vision and persistence. . . of Nature’s bountifulness, complexity and seemingly infinite patience. . . and of the generous and resonant beauty to be found in the details around this veteran wooden vessel, in varying light and weather. Together, they tell the story of how we learned to walk on water.

The 106.5-foot, three-masted wooden whaler, the Charles W. Morgan is the oldest American commercial ship afloat. She was re-launched July 21, 2013, the 175th anniversary of its initial launch in 1841.
