Restoring the Constitution, drydock edition

With a two-year restoration project nearly done, Patrick Kennedy of Suffolk Construction takes a look at the one thing without which the work wouldn't be possible, at least not without hauling the ship onto a muddy embankment: The dry dock.

Undefeated in the War of 1812, Constitution was already a legend when she entered the brand-new, Quincy-granite dry dock in Charlestown, Massachusetts, on June 24, 1833. (That’s 184 years from this Saturday.)
