Mystic Seaport riggers Matt Otto, left, and Alex Peacock wrap tarred marline around a length of wire rope rigging for the whaleship Charles W. Morgan Thursday, October 11, 2012. The Morgan is less than a year away from the planned launch after a complete restoration of the ship to sailing condition. Built in New Bedford in 1841, the Morgan is the last wooden whaleship surviving in the world and is a National Historic Landmark. Otto, the seaport's lead rigger, says some 200 or 300 feet of the Morgan's 7000 feet of rigging have been restored to date.
