About the Lecture Maintaining and operating steel-hulled tall ships that serve as both floating classrooms and ocean research laboratories and sail many thousands of miles every year is a complex challenge - and Sea Education Association has been doing it for more than 47 years. Capt. Jen Haddock will discuss the recent major maintenance of SEA’s flagship, SSV Corwith Cramer, an ambitious project that lasted four months last summer in Belfast, Maine. Work covered every inch of the ship, from the hull to the rigging, and included engine room, galley, science lab and living spaces. Jen will describe the planning, objectives, logistics, and management of the project, as well as the resources used, challenges faced, and solutions arrived at to achieve a successful outcome.
