Moving the Oliver Hazard Perry

Quote:
Rhode Island’s Education-at-Sea School Ship, the SSV Oliver Hazard Perry, tested the waters of Providence Harbor and upper Narragansett Bay on Monday, December 12, when it was launched at Sims Metal Management (formerly Promet Marine) in Providence and towed to its new home at Senesco Marine in North Kingstown’s Quonset Point.
At Senesco Marine, one of the Northeast’s premier shipyards for new construction and vessel repair, the non-profit organization Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island (OHPRI) will continue building the 196’ (sparred length) steel-hulled ship.

Re: Moving the Oliver Hazard Perry

Cool..thanks
The picture is a bit miss leading since it looks like it has a superstructure/pilot house, in fact what we see is from the tug on the port side,

Indeed. I was expecting a tent or maybe a plywood shack...

Is that a bow thruster in the bow? What the...? I hope they teach the kids that not all boats come with them. Especially in the 1800's. From the waterline it still looks like they have a lot of STUFF yet to be installed.

Re: Moving the Oliver Hazard Perry

Looks like they are hoping it will be well hidden when she's on her lines.

But this is really irrelevent to my mind as the hull is actually recycled from a never-completed Canadian replica. I'm fine with yet another tall ship in the world, but this is like building a Ford Tri-motor out of composites and turboprops and calling it "a Ford Tri-motor".

As was said of Camelot in Monty Python and the Holy Grail: "It's only a model."

But as a model, it's going to be a lot easier to dock with a whopping bow thruster.

Not just a thruster. Twin screws as well.
