    this picture shows the first dry dock in boston. the navel yard is at the end of the 2.5 mile freedom trail walk. it was intresting to see a boat in the dry dock. they have a lot of historical information along with an overpirced store. this picture shows how the scally wags currenty fix hull problems. at the boat yard they give the old methods that used to be used to fix boats. it involved using ropes to pull the boat onto its side in the water. this would allow them to fix one part the boat, then they would repeat for the other side. when you walk into the yard keep an eye out on the right side of the path. you will see a somewhat strange looking building. it only has two windows. just look, it's strange. good luck and have some fun

    IF YOU LIKE MY TIP, PLEASE GIVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK, THANKS

    This is the USS Constitution moored up in Boston harbour. We were allowed to go onto the boat and see how boats were originally made. This was popular with Naval students.
