Mayflower II nearing end of restoration work
Mystic — Workers from Superior Docks of Ellsworth, Maine, and Plimoth Plantation positioned the gangway piece on board the Mayflower II on Thursday at Mystic Seaport Museum's H.B. duPont Preservation Shipyard.
The vessel, a replica of the original Mayflower that carried the Pilgrims to America in 1620, is near the end of a 3-year restoration. However, sea trials scheduled for this spring off New London and 400th anniversary festivities scheduled for Boston and Cape Cod this spring and summer are all in doubt due to the coronavirus pandemic.
