Much later than period, but...

The Charles W. Morgan, the last wooden whaling ship in the world, departed Mystic, CT for the first time since she was towed there in 1941. She has been made seaworthy after a long and extensive overhaul and the Mystic Seaport museum is actually taking her to sea. She departed this weekend from Mystic to New London, CT in order to complete her ballasting and rigging, as well as become certified by the Coast Guard for this voyage along the New England coast. Sure, she's much later than the GAoP, but still would be an incredible sight underway.

She seems really beautiful -- thanks for posting the pictures. I am hoping to go aboard when she stops in Boston later this summer.
