Some Bethlehem shipyard work is cosmetic But even here, unblemished "skin' is an essential, for an untended figurehead bodes foul weather. During the four days the Norwegian square rigger. Christian Radich. lay in our
Boston Yard, her crew scrubbed her down and polished her brass to a fare-thee-well. We then put her in drydock and scraped and painted her underwater hull. (And touched her up with paint here and there topside.)
Thus made sparkling to the eye and smooth to the sea, the tall ship spread her canvas and sailed the Boston Harbor. She became a jewel of OpSail 80, that lustrous gathering of ships that cast off the year-long celebration of the city's 350th birthday.
Bethlehem helped. We look forward to when you, too, will trust your ship to a Bethlehem yard. You'll sail out a winner.
