Underwater Hull Inspection of the Virginia V Steamship
May 8, 2023
Global Diving & Salvage recently performed a pro bono underwater hull inspection of the Virginia V, a 100-year-old steamship, that was built in 1922 and still travels the waters of Puget Sound in Washington State. This vessel is one of the last wooden steamships on the West Coast. She is also the last member of the ‘Mosquito Fleet’ that used to deliver mail and take passengers around the Puget Sound.
We offered to assist the Virginia V Foundation with this underwater inspection as part of its commitment to supporting the local community and the chance to help in preserving a piece of maritime history. The inspection was conducted to ensure the safety and structural integrity of the vessel.
