Phase 3 Albany 2002 - Present
This process has turned the Slater into one of the most authentically restored historic naval ships in the nation. The crew persists with maintenance painting and continually reworks spaces for a second and third time
The most critical future need is to raise the funds to dry dock the Slater in order to repair her underwater body and give attention to all those unglamorous spaces that the public does not see - the fuel tanks, voids and bilges. It is estimated that this will be a $3,000,000 project, but based on past accomplishments and with continued support from generous visitors and members, this critical phase of the restoration of the USS Slater will finally reach completion.
