Last month, a major milestone in the repair efforts of the World War II "fast battleship" USS North Carolina (BB-55), which has been undergoing the most significant restoration work in more than five decades.

Last week, the floodgates to the cofferdam were opened, and for the first time since May 2018 the majestic warship is back in the water of the Cape Fear River.

The $11 million project to preserve the ship included the construction of the cofferdam, which began in August 2016 to allow work crews to drain the water from around the hull and address repairs.
