CAPTION ONLY: ROUGH SAILING

SHARE CAPTION ONLY: ROUGH SAILING

A replica of Henry Hudson's exploring ship, the Half Moon, leaves port in Albany, N.Y., for Manhattan, four months late and towed by a tug boat. The $1 million replica is going to Manhattan for repairs on its diesel engine. The Half Moon was originally scheduled to leave its berth July 5. But engine problems and the death of its architect and builder, Nicholas Benton, delayed the departure. In 1609, Henry Hudson sailed up the body of water now called the Hudson River.
