Spouter the Whale

A collage of images of the life-size inflatable sperm whale on the factory floor in Minnesota. The whale was fabricated by the talented staff at Landmark Creations and will be part of the Charles W. Morgan‘s dockside exhibit during the 38th Voyage.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Name the Whale contest from March 20-28, 2014. More than 100 names were submitted and the decision was not an easy one to make due to the quality of the suggestions. We are pleased to announce the name of the inflatable whale for the Charles W. Morgan’s dockside exhibition during the 38th Voyage is Spouter! The winning name was submitted by Ann Mauer.

The Morgan will stop at several ports during her 38th Voyage. On select days the 1841 whaleship will be open for boarding and feature a dockside exhibition program that examines the cultural, economic, and scientific history of whales and whaling. Spouter will be a major highlight of this exhibition. We hope you make plans to see Spouter and explore the exhibit at one of the ports.
