Half Moon

A New Season On The Half Moon

2013 is an important year for the Replica Ship Half Moon, not history-wise, but maintenance-wise. This year, the Half Moon will undergo major projects, including a haul out on Staten Island to make repairs to the hull. Other projects include the replacement of running rigging, standing rigging and woodwork throughout the ship.

In order for these necessary repairs and maintenance to take place, a crew will begin the season with a short, weekend trip from Verplanck to Athens. The voyage will commence Saturday, April 6th an end Sunday April 7th.

Even before this trip can begin, many arrangements are underway, including planning, expenses, food, transportation, and organization. This week, a few of the senior crew members will head to Verplanck to get all systems aboard the ship operational and prepare the Half Moon for the arrival of our new volunteers next week.

Bon Voyage!
