On hold for the moment in New London
Mystic Seaport staff along with crew of the whaleship Charles W. Morgan stack bars of steel ballast on pallets to be lifted out of the hold during the process of removing ballast and rigging Monday aboard the ship docked at City Pier in New London. The Morgan is slated to depart City Pier in New London at 2 p.m. Wednesday, enter the mouth of the Mystic River around 3:45 p.m. and arrive back home at Mystic Seaport at 5:30 p.m. when a welcoming ceremony will be held. Updates on the ship's position will be posted at www.mysticseaport.org. The Morgan has not been at the Seaport since May 17, when it began its voyage to New England ports. It will reopen to visitors on Saturday.
