Written by Cecil C. Achord
Seaward Marine Services completed underwater hull cleaning and inspection on the USS CONSTITUTION (IX-21) on April 7, 2015 in support of an upcoming Dry-Dock period in May 2015.  USS CONSTITUTION is one of six Frigates authorized for construction in 1794, was named by President George Washington after our U.S. Constitution and is the oldest fully commissioned U.S. Navy ship. Seaward Marine Divers completed a pre-clean assessment, the hull cleaning and post-clean documentation report within sixteen working hours.  The Divers Hull Inspection Data report with photos was delivered to the Naval History and Heritage Command Detachment and the NAVSEA Director of Ocean Engineering Supervisor of Salvage and Diving on site Representative.

As recognition to Seaward’s involvement in the preparation of the dry-docking Seaward’s Divers were given the opportunity to sign a sheet of the copper cladding that will be used to replace sheeting installed during the CONSTITUTION’s previous docking in 1992.
