Former crew members, Patriots Point staff and the news media were on hand earlier this morning to watch the departure of USS Laffey to Detyen’s Shipyard. Exactly at 0715, Laffey began to ease out of her berth and was met by loud cheers and “Hurray!” from onlookers aboard Yorktown and smaller vessels lying off in Charleston Harbor.
The trip to the drydock was successfully completed in 75 minutes, read the Post and Courier story here… Tomorrow the USCG Cutter Ingham will be departing, more on her tomorrow…
