Norwegian Cruise Line’s vessel ‘Norwegian Epic’ was at Damen Shiprepair Brest between 27 September and 17 October 2015 for a wide-ranging scope of refit and maintenance works. As is usual with cruise-related work, time was of the essence with this project, a fast turnaround being required in order for the vessel to be ready in time for her next passengers.
The USS Fitzgerald is now in Yokosuka’s dry dock 4, where officials will conduct a full assessment and decide the next step for the damaged destroyer. Seven sailors were killed in a June 17 collision between the Fitzgerald and a Philippine-flagged cargo ship, about 64 miles southwest of the naval base. Officials will “conduct assessments that will inform options for long term repairs,” a Navy statement said Monday. They are trying to determine if the Fitzgerald is able to travel to the states under its own power or will need to be towed there for repairs.

The USS Intrepid moved from Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair Corp. to Staten Island Homeport Pier today. The date coincides with the 63rd anniversary of D-Day, one of the most momentous events of World War II. Workers at Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair Company pressure-washed, primed and applied 5,600 gallons of battleship gray paint to the 900-foot-long aircraft carrier. They also removed the four bronze propellers that dug into the mud and delayed Intrepid's trip to New Jersey in November. Four tug boats hauled the boat from Bayonne earlier today without incident. While at Staten Island's Homeport Pier, workers will outfit the ship with new interactive exhibits and displays, "the high tech, whiz bang, the wow," said White. The ship will then return to its permanent home at a refurbished Pier 8...

Iceland is by far one of the most unique places we've ever visited. It honestly felt like we were on a different planet! It was like a photographers dreamland, because the sunset lasted for 3 hours (hello golden hour!), and the sun never fully went down. We got back to our Airbnb around midnight every night, because we got too carried away exploring!

"Mr. Push-a-Button", a U.S. Navy film about the education and responsibilities of a Naval officer, starts with images of the U.S. Navy's mothball or reserve fleet, as a Navy officer receives new orders transferring him from reserve duties to the fleet and in particular, managing one of the U.S. Navy's new surface-to-air guided missile systems aboard the cruiser USS Canberra CA-70. The title of the film comes from the fear that the officer in the film expresses that "men are being replaced by machines" and that automation will replace men in the Navy. He realizes over the course of the film (and during an odd dream sequence seen at 15:20) that nothing can replace the human element when it comes to managing shipboard systems. The film is primarily about managing crewmen aboard ship, and the ...

Celebration and Activities aboard the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA in 1961 upon her arrival in Wilmington, NC. After serving as a training vessel for midshipmen, NORTH CAROLINA was decommissioned 27 June 1947 and placed in the Inactive Reserve Fleet in Bayonne, New Jersey, for the next 14 years. In 1958 the announcement of her impending scrapping led to a statewide campaign by citizens of North Carolina to save the ship from the scrappers torches and bring her back to her home state. The Save Our Ship (SOS) campaign was successful and the Battleship arrived in her current berth on 2 October 1961. She was dedicated on 29 April 1962 as the State's memorial to its World War II veterans and the 10,000 North Carolinians who died during the war. Donation from the estate of Hugh Morton
A two-way radio is a radio that can both transmit and receive, unlike a broadcast receiver which only receives content. A two-way radio allows the operator to have a conversation with other similar radios operating on the same radio frequency. Two-way radios are available in mobile, stationary base and hand-held portable configurations. Hand-held radios are often called walkie-talkies, handie-talkies, or just hand-helds. Two-way radio systems usually operate in a half-duplex mode; that is, the operator can talk, or he can listen, but not at the same time. A push-to-talk or Press To Transmit button activates the transmitter; when it is released the receiver is active. A mobile phone or cellular telephone is an example of a two-way radio that both transmits and receives at the same time. It ...

This Eco-Dock is a floating upwelling system that functions as an oyster nursery as well as a boat dock for the Urban Assembly New York Harbor School. The dock resides at Pier 101 on Governors Island. In 2013 the dock went in dry dock for a rehab/ upgrade at Union Dry Dock in Hoboken, New Jersey. A BIG shout out to the late John Krevey who taught me a lot about dock building (among other things) and was very generous donating old but still plenty useful stuff to the School. Funding for this project was provided by the New York State Department of State Coastal Resources Program. Matching funds were provided by the New York Harbor Foundation.
The Battle of the Chesapeake, also known as the Battle of the Virginia Capes or simply the Battle of the Capes, was a crucial naval battle in the American War of Independence that took place near the mouth of Chesapeake Bay on 5 September 1781, between a British fleet led by Rear Admiral Sir Thomas Graves and a French fleet led by Rear Admiral Francois Joseph Paul, the Comte de Grasse. The battle was tactically inconclusive but strategically a major defeat for the British, since it prevented the Royal Navy from reinforcing or evacuating the blockaded forces of Lieutenant General Lord Cornwallis at Yorktown, Virginia. When the French were able to achieve temporary control of the sea lanes against the British, the result was the reinforcement of the Continental Army with siege artillery and ...
Banquo is a character in William Shakespeare's 1606 play Macbeth. In the play, he is at first an ally to Macbeth (both are generals in the King's army) and they are together when they meet the Three Witches. After prophesying that Macbeth will become king, the witches tell Banquo that he will not be king himself, but that his descendants will be. Later, Macbeth in his lust for power sees Banquo as a threat and has him murdered; Banquo's son, Fleance, escapes. Banquo's ghost returns in a later scene, causing Macbeth to react with alarm during a public feast. Shakespeare borrowed the character of Banquo from Holinshed's Chronicles, a history of Britain published by Raphael Holinshed in 1587. In Chronicles Banquo is an accomplice to Macbeth in the murder of the king, rather than a loyal subje...

The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano, written in 1789, is the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano. It discusses his time spent in slavery, serving primarily on galleys, documents his attempts at becoming an independent man through his study of the Bible, and his eventual success in gaining his own freedom and in business thereafter. The book contains an interesting discussion of slavery in West Africa and illustrates how the experience differs from the dehumanising slavery of the Americas. The Intereresting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano is also one of the first widely read slave narratives. It was generally reviewed favorably. (Wikipedia) This work was produced to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the slave trade in Great Britain. The Inte...
