The educational schooner S/V Denis Sullivan, the flagship of Wisconsin, made an emergency detour to Core Creek Marine in Beaufort, N.C., recently after the crew discovered several leaks in the hull.

The 137-foot replica schooner travels from the Great Lakes to the Caribbean, gathering scientific data to be transmitted to classrooms around the country. Educational tours of the boat and sailing cruises are also offered.

While making the return trip to the Great Lakes, the crew realized there were several leaks in the hull. Capt. Tiffany Krihwan searched the Internet for yards capable of hauling the 150-ton ship and found Core Creek Marine.

The Denis Sullivan sailed into Beaufort Inlet April 12 and docked overnight at the Duke Marine Lab on Radio Island. The crew spent the following day lowering the top masts to fit underneath the power lines and, on April 14, made their way up the ICW to be hauled and brought to Core Creek Marine.

The crew has been working with yard employees to fix the problem. Hull seams are being recaulked, and the props and shafts are being serviced.
