The Florence is a western rig dragger located at Mystic Seaport in Mystic, Connecticut, United States. The Florence was built in 1926 by Franklin G. Post along the Mystic River and was used as a dragger in Long Island Sound. In 1982 the Florence was acquired by Mystic Seaport and completely restored to her original configuration. The Florence is the only working dragger in a museum collection. The Florence is now used to carry students to collect marine biology specimens from Fishers Island Sound.
