A Look at USS Constitution’s 2015-2017 Dry Docking and Restoration

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts


USS Constitution, America’s Ship of State, entered the Charlestown Navy Yard’s Dry Dock 1 the night of May 18, 2015 for a 26-month dry docking and restoration period.  Over the course of the past two years the ship restorers and riggers of the Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment Boston and teams of USS Constitution crew accomplished several important projects that will preserve and extend the life of “Old Ironsides”, the oldest commissioned warship afloat in the world.

The ship will be undocked the night of July 23rd.  As preparations are underway to refloat Constitution at the close of her first 21st century dry docking, here is a look back at some of the work that was accomplished.

For more information on each project, please click on the photograph; you will be redirected to the original blog post that provides in-depth details of the work. http://usnhistory.navylive.dodlive.mil/2017/07/17/a-look-at-uss-constitutions-2015-2017-dry-docking-and-restoration/
