U.S. Brig Niagara at Great Lakes Shipyard

Friday, October 11, 2013

The U.S. Brig Niagara, Erie, Pennsylvania’s Flagship, arrived at Great Lakes Shipyard for routine drydocking and repairs. The vessel was hauled out using the Marine Travelift, and the work on the vessel will be completed in approximately two weeks.



This marks the first time Great Lakes Shipyard has hauled out a tall ship using their Travelift as well as the first time the US Brig Niagara  has been hauled out with a Travelift.
 


According to the yard, this project demonstrates another example of the diversity of Great Lakes Shipyard’s service capabilities and experience in wood, steel, and aluminum work that ranges from hydraulic and pneumatic systems to mechanical and machine shop services.



Owned and maintained by the PA Historical and Museum Commission, an agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the Flagship Niagara  is a reconstruction of Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship that led the Battle of Lake Erie victory on September 10, 1813.
