Oliver Hazard Perry

New Milestones for America’s Newest Tall Ship

The U.S. Coast Guard has issued a stability letter to America’s newest tall ship for operation on exposed waters, confirming that SSV Oliver Hazard Perry exceeds their most stringent Sailing School Vessel standards for stability. This assures that the vessel is on track to begin offshore ocean voyaging in early 2017 following the successful near-shore sailing achieved this past summer.   The first scheduled offshore passage will be south from Rhode Island to Florida, starting in January 2017.   The 200-foot, three-masted, full rigged ship is currently dry-docked in North Kingstown, R.I. at J. Goodison Company, Inc., which hauled the vessel on October 19 with its new 820 metric ton marine travelift. Persak & Wurmfeld, Inc. of Brooklyn, N.Y. has provided naval architecture and technical Management services to the vessel since early this year. Both companies are marine trades partners of the nonprofit organization Oliver Hazard Perry Rhode Island (OHPRI), which owns and operates the ship.    “After a successful first summer season of programs in New England, this yard period gives us the opportunity for some routine maintenance and improvements,” said Captain David Dawes. “This includes replacement of all fresh water tanks with stainless steel; modifications to the exhaust system; and installation of an emergency generator.”
