The restorations extend the life of the nearly 2-feet (61-centimeter) -thick vessel — the last remaining survivor of six ships created when President George Washington signed the Naval Armament Act — said Margherita Desy, a historian at Naval History & Heritage Command Detachment Boston.The most recent work included replacing 100 hull planks and installing 2,200 new copper sheets, 500 of which were signed by nearly 100,000 museum visitors, according to USS Constitution Museum President Anne Grimes Rand, who called the ship "a wonderful symbol for our democracy."The Constitution entered the dock at the historic Charlestown Navy Yard on the night of May 18, 2015, and on Sunday — a day that was expected to have the highest tide of the summer — the dry dock at the navy yard was flooded, and the ship was lifted off the keel block.

- Ghost Ship victims’ suit against PG&E allowed to continue
By Bob Egelko - Thursday Sep 14, 2017
Families of victims in the lethal Ghost Ship fire can sue Pacific Gas and Electric Co. for allegedly failing to monitor or shut down dangerous electric facilities in the Oakland warehouse, a Superior Court judge has ruled. Thirty-six people died from smoke inhalation after being trapped in a blaze that erupted in December during an electronic music concert in a section of the Fruitvale District building that had been illegally converted into an artist collective. PG&E supplied electricity to the warehouse but said it couldn’t be held responsible for any power that had been redirected from a neighboring auto body shop, a registered tenant of the building, to the Ghost Ship.
