A Historical Ship Rolled Out of the Bay and Onto Land This Morning
As was true of most ships of her class, 1091 was not given a name but was only known by her number. She performed a number of tasks in her career including battleship (she received two stars), minesweeper, participated in atomic bomb tests, laboratory ship, and much more. Until today, she has been docked in Humboldt Bay and opened to the public as a museum.
This morning, crews used ancient technology to place cut up logs under her hull and roll her to her current spot.
Ancient log rolling technology aided by modern machinery helps WWII ship be brought on land for inspection and repairs.
