Vermont students build whaling boat


VERGENNES (AP) - A 28-foot whaling boat built by Vermont teenagers will be docked at Basin Harbor for a month before moving to Mystic Seaport in Connecticut.

According to reports, the boat will serve as an interactive exhibit on the Charles W. Morgan, a restored whale ship.

Six students at the Hannaford Career Center in Middlebury worked on the project four days a week at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum before celebrating its completion last week.
