USS Slater heads back to Albany

Posted:

ALBANY, N.Y. – A World War II warship is making its way back to Albany.

The USS Slater is traveling up the Hudson River after undergoing almost three months of repairs at the Caddell Dry Dock and Repair Company on Staten Island.

The ship received a new camouflage scheme meant to confuse enemy ships. The $1.2 million project was funded by private donations.

You can follow the Slater’s journey on www.marinetraffic.com and search for either the Margot or Frances, one of the tub boats pulling the ship.

The destroyer escort is the last of its kind afloat in the U.S. and is a floating museum from April through November.
