Haul Out – 2012 December 20, 2012 by admin 2 Comments A beautiful day for hauling the ship out of the water. Dockside, Fairhaven shipyard. Looking forward towards land, ship in the submerged railway car. Cranking in the blocking on the railway car to keep the ship upright when it comes out of the water. The railway on which the ship will be hauled. Note the car on which the ship will ride has already been lowered down into the water. With the ship floated into the railway car, big measuring sticks are used to assure the ship is securly in the middle. Success! The ship is high and dry and ready for winter work to commence.
