USS Monitor Skeg Elements Move

It’s no secret that our Conservation team might have the coolest jobs at The Mariners’ 💦💦

Yesterday, we moved USS Monitor’s skeg elements out of their treatment tanks and over to our tank farm where they will undergo dry-ice cleaning. These elements from the ironclad are from the back of the ship and mostly comprised of hull fragments, bulkhead plates, the skeg beam, and the Y-bracket.

You can see our team working with Hampton Roads Crane and Rigging to lift the objects, place them securely on the truck bed, and then re-lift them to their new temporary homes where they await cleaning!
