Mystic Update

| May/June 1991

We've received an update from the Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic, Connecticut 16355-0990. You may recall the article on page 8 of the September 1990 GEM, entitled 'Connecticut Museum Needs Help.' The help they needed was in identifying three 'mystery.' engines.

Word now comes that the museum needs even more help than asked for in September! Their crew has rebuilt the 1926 Post-built dragger Florence, originally powered by a 65 HP, 6 cylinder Lathrop Standard Model, and two years later by a 65 HP, 4 cylinder Bridgeport. The staff would like details about these engines or parts for them. Same request goes regarding their recently acquired 1897 oyster boat whose original power was a 12 HP Wolverine.
