USS SLATER is closed for winter maintenance. We expect to reopen in June 2014.





Now that we've got your attention, there is something else you should know. You can help! Our dry-dock repair project is being completely funded by private donations. Since the Hull Fund Drive began in 2010, slightly over a million dollars has been donated. However, we are still short of our goal. In the shipyard, decisions will be made daily on the amount of cash available. Most of our donations are small amounts, given by old sailors and supporters. There is no government or public money involved. Everyone’s support will let us bring the USS SLATER back to Albany in the best possible shape. So please hit the “Donate” button at the bottom of the page, or go here to print our donation formh http://www.ussslater.org/participate/donate.html and note “Hull Fund” on your check. Join the crew. We thank you!

Open for Tours: June through November, Wednesday through Sunday, 10AM - 4PM
