Thank You To All That Attended HNSA 2017!


Seaward Marine Services would like to thank the Historic Naval Ships Association for having us at their annual conference which was held this year in Charleston, SC, and the Patriots Point for hosting the event. It was a first for us to set our booth up on the main deck of an aircraft carrier, the USS Yorktown, and we really enjoyed that experience. We'd like to thank all those who came by our booth this year, and hope that more museum ships will begin to utilize and count on our services the way our current museum ship customers have. Thanks again, and always looking forward to doing what we can to help you preserve naval history.
