After some work, the Conrad is back

Mystic Seaport staff watch as the tall ship Joseph Conrad is lowered into the water Monday by the shiplift at the seaport's H.B. DuPont Preservation Shipyard in Stonington. The steel-hulled Conrad, built in Denmark in 1882 as the Georg Stage, has been at the seaport since 1947. The Conrad was pulled from the water three weeks ago for routine bottom maintenance that included cleaning, priming and painting. It returned to its berth on the north side of the seaport's Lighthouse point.
