R/V Sally Ride has entered a shipyard period as it ends its first year in service. Upgrades and refits will be made over the next few months. After that, it will be back to science cruises! Follow along here for photos from the shipyard, including dry dock, where the ship is set up on blocks out of the water so that the outer hull, propellers, and other areas that are usually below the waterline can be accessed. Click for larger versions. For more details about the changes being made in the shipyard, check out this post. And this one for more pictures
