Rowing on the Mighty Merrimack
We'll spend the week exploring the Merrimack River using the museum’s fleet of traditional Banks dories and our ten-oared surf dory Provident.  Water safety and rowing instructions will be covered on Day One; all rowers will wear USCG-approved life vests. Once competently rowing the boats, we will cast off to explore the river and its surounds.
