Caught her in her old dry dock near the end of her refurbishment period.  Prior to an inspection in Charlestown (Boston) MA USA🇺🇸

I hear repairs are about done and she'll be tasting seawater again soon.  223 years old.

She is out of the pen and afloat... 'repairs accomplished'... Pretty amazing to be that close with no tourists or guards around last week... Was doing a job for one of the 'olde towne team' boys (Red Sox) nearby...   The drydock itself is amazing...so old....

Her history is fantastic. Right on back to the design phase. If you're interested in seeing how this hull is almost immune to hogging, read up on the diagonal riders that shift loads from the ends of the hull to the center of the keel. That and the density of the ribs is just amazing. One tough gal!
