Engines removed from Amistad in Mystic

A crane swings the second of the two engines removed from the engine room of the schooner Amistad, at left, to a waiting transport truck from H.O. Penn Machinery Co. at the Mystic Seaport's H.B. duPont Preservation Shipyard Friday, January 29, 2016. The 2,200 pound Caterpillar 3304 series engines were being removed from the schooner for maintenance. The engines will be transported to H.O. Penn in Newington for whatever work is necessary before they are re-installed in the vessel. Discovering Amistad, the schooner's new owner, is planning a comprehensive re-fit of the schooner over the winter with plans for it to return to Long Island Sound in the spring. At center is the Seaport's historic sail training vessel Joseph Conrad, hauled out for hull maintenance on the shipyard's shoplift system. (Sean D. Elliot/The Day)
