Staff at the Mystic Seaport's H.B. duPont Preservation Shipyard watch as the foremast is lowered the final inches into place on the mast step in the hold of the whaleship Charles W. Morgan Thursday, October 17, 2013. The foremast will be the first of the ship's three masts to be stepped as the ship is fitted with its standing rig (the rigging that supports the masts and spars) this fall. The main and mizzen masts will be stepped later this month or early next month.
