The Intrepid was headed to Bayonne for a sixty million dollar overhaul. They are planning on a refit and to open up more interior spaces. It has been sitting in NYC for 20+ years so they decided it was time for maintenence. Intrepid is supposed to return in 2008.

There were 6 Tug Boats with a total of 30,000 hp. They were able to move it Approx. 6ft. After 20 years of sitting sideways in the Hudson, being 900+ feet long, I'm sure it collected a hell of alot of silt. The new plan is to dredge around it and pull it out in a month. They are supposedly bringing in 2 other HD Tugs as well.

Doesn't seem like a whole heck of a lot of forethought was put into this move!
