The Amistad is open to the public at Op Sail and drawing long lines. Early Thursday, there were special tours for school kids. In this group of 4 th and 5 th grade summer schoolers from Nathan Hale School in New london, Victor Williams, 4 th grader, needed a belt to keep his pants from slipping, so Dennis Burroughs, a crewman on the Amistad, took a piece of rope and fashioned him a special belt complete with nautical knots.
