Boston Tea Party ship restored

UPI News Service, 01/23/2012 

Officials with the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum in Massachusetts said work on a 90-foot-long replica of one the ships has been completed.

The tall ship Beaver was to depart from Gloucester Marine Railways after months of restoration work and it will be replaced by a second ship, the Eleanor, the Gloucester Times reported Monday.

The Boston Globe said the vessel was a 1908 Denmark cargo ship that was renovated to be a replica of the Beaver.

Lauren Black of Boston's Conventures Inc. said work on the Beaver included replacing the frames, hull planks, deck, bow and stern. She said the Eleanor will receive a new hull.

Both ships are described as historically accurate, depicting vessels that were unloaded in the historic Boston Tea Party. They will eventually make the trip to Boston Harbor to become permanent fixtures of the museum, which is due to open June 25.

A third ship, the Dartmouth, is set to begin construction in June, with a goal of having it ready for the museum in 2013.
