Exclamation Re: National Historic Ships: HMS Caroline

Jutland survivor undergoes hull restoration work

She hasn’t been out of the water for 32 years so it’s not surprising to see the hull of the sole surviving vessel from the Battle of Jutland covered in barnacles.

As per Pelican's link above:

Quote:
HMS Caroline is slowly eased into her mooring as she returns to Alexandra Dock in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter following repairs to her hull.
During the work at Harland and Wolff’s Heavy Industries Dock, the sole surviving vessel from the Battle of Jutland had 1,700 rivets repaired.
At the peak of the work, 14 teams of welders were repairing one rivet every 90 seconds.

Tonnes of barnacles were blasted off her hull before having a marine-grade paint scheme applied. It was the first time in 32 years that the ship had been out of the water.

Caroline boasts the accolade of being the most accessible ship in the National Museum of the Royal Navy’s collection, thanks to the installation of three glass lifts giving access to three of her decks.

HMS CAROLINE SAYS THANK YOU TO NATIONAL LOTTERY PLAYERS

In conjunction with the Heritage Lottery Fund, HMS Caroline is pleased to welcome National Lottery players to Belfast’s newest award-winning attraction, HMS Caroline for free from 11 – 17 December 2017.

A new month-long celebration by the National Lottery sees Heritage Lottery Funded projects take part in a co-ordinated week of free activities, giving National Lottery players access to some of the UK’s finest historical attractions.

National Lottery players have contributed £7.7 billion of funding to over 42,000 heritage projects across the UK since 1994, and HMS Caroline is proud to be part of their success story. The Heritage Lottery Fund has supported The National Museum of the Royal Navy, in particular, HMS Caroline, through grants totalling £15 million since 2014.

HMS Caroline is the last survivor of the Battle of Jutland and of the First World War British Grand Fleet. The ship has been redeveloped to increase the accessibility of areas across the ship including the Captain’s quarters and engine room.

The quayside development continues with a new visitor centre, set to launch in April 2018 in the original 120-year-old Pump House. This unique building will provide space for special exhibitions, and links the heritage of HMS Caroline with the surrounding maritime environment – in particular Alexandra Dock.
HMS Caroline would like to say a massive thank you for the continued support offered by the Heritage Lottery Fund alongside our other partners, through their expertise and financial contribution.

Lottery Players can watch the drama unfold in the Battle of Jutland experience, following the stories of crewman who fought in one of history’s most devastating battles.

450 different objects are on show which helps tell the story of the people of Northern Ireland during the First and Second World War supported by a fully immersive audio tour. Visitors with a National Lottery scratch card or ticket can access HMS Caroline for free from 11 – 17 December.

Terms and conditions apply.

One National Lottery ticket provides free entry for up to one adult ticket only from 11 – 17 December
All National Lottery games qualify for free entry, including tickets from any National Lottery draw based game or National Lottery scratch card. Proof of ticket can be paper or digital.
The offer is valid from 11 – 17 December from 10am until 5pm each day
HMS Caroline has the right to refuse entry in the unlikely event of the venue reaching capacity
Tickets will be given on entry to HMS Caroline on the day only
