About the Lecture
Maintaining and operating steel-hulled tall ships that serve as both floating classrooms and ocean research laboratories and sail many thousands of miles every year is a complex challenge - and Sea Education Association has been doing it for more than 47 years.

Capt. Jen Haddock will discuss the recent major maintenance of  SEA's flagship, SSV Corwith Cramer, an ambitious project that lasted four months last summer in Belfast, Maine.  Work covered every inch of the ship, from the hull to the rigging, and included engine room, galley, science lab and living spaces. Jen will describe the planning, objectives, logistics, and management of the project, as well as the resources used, challenges faced, and solutions arrived at to achieve a  successful outcome.

About the Lecturer
Capt. Jen Haddock is SEAís Marine Operations Coordinator. She served as Project Manager for the last summerís extensive maintenance project. Jen is also a graduate of SEA Semester, SEAís study abroad program focused on the ocean.
