Historic whaleship hauled for maintenance
With a crowd lining the waterfront, the staff at Mystic Seaport Museum moved the historic wooden whaleship Charles W. Morgan from its berth at Chubbs Wharf at the museum's north end to the Henry B. duPont Shipyard at the south end for a maintanenance interval.
The Morgan, a national historic landmark and the last vessel of its kind in the world, will be out of the water for about a month for the regularly scheduled maintenance.
The Morgan was last out of the water for maintenance in 2016. The Morgan, and the museum's other large historic vessels — the Joseph Conrad and the L.A. Dunton — are on a three-year rotation for being hauled out for maintenance.
