A purposeful staging of three George’s. Sitting in GEORGE is volunteer George Hess along with an eponymous faithful companion. The whole scene speaks to the spirit of The Boathouse at Mystic Seaport.
This is George, an eight week old Golden Retriever, on the occasion of his first visit to The Boathouse. Merrill recounts that he was quick to jump aboard and felt right at home in this stable vessel.
