Maryland Institute Updates Website, Comments on Massive Maritime Sculpture

The Institute for Maritime History in Kensington, Maryland has updated its website with a new design. It looks excellent and the website is full of interesting information, including this Feb. 24 commentary about the Maine Maritime Museum's attempt to recreate a giant wooden ship in concrete and steel on the site of an historic shipyard. The commentor, Stefan Claesson, is pretty upset with what he calls "poor decision-making" by the museum and the state government. Here's an article on the project in the Kennebec Journal.
