Join the excitement as Bojangles, the 24-foot, carbon/kevlar composite foam ocean rowboat is refitted ready for her forthcoming journey across the North Atlantic. From March 1 to March 7, visit with British Ocean Rowers Mick Dawson and Andrew Morris as they ready their high-tech craft at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park’s Hyde Street Pier. During the seven-day work period, visitors to the pier (enter at Hyde and Jefferson streets) will be able to observe the preparation work and speak with the crew between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
San Francisco Bay marks the spot where Bojangles arrived in November, 2009, after a record breaking journey of 189 days, 10 hours and 55 minutes non stop across the North Pacific Ocean. Bojangles has been on display at the Maritime National Historical Park ever since.
There is much work to be done in order to prepare Bojangles for her next sea voyage. New solar panels, navigational equipment and electrics will be installed as part of the refit. Join the OAR team on Hyde Street Pier and stay turned for the latest photos and updates on the refit.
