Preserving RI’s Largest Ship Graveyard

David Robinson, M.A., R.P.A. (Bio)
Marine Archeologist, Graduate School of Oceanography, University of Rhode Island

David Robinson, M.A., R.P.A., a marine archaeologist at the URI Graduate School of Oceanography, will present on his recent RI Sea Grant-funded research that identified the remains of 29 wooden vessels and RI’s first floating dry dock that lie submerged in the Providence River on Green Jacket Shoal, just west of East Providence’s Bold Point Park. Comprising a unique and remarkably well-preserved maritime cultural landscape and collection of nineteenth and early twentieth century sail, steam, and towed working watercraft, along with the remains of the 1884 floating dry dock pier, the Green Jacket Shoal ship graveyard is the final resting place of two of the most iconic RI steamboats, Mount Hope (1888) and Bay Queen (1865), sidewheelers that operated for nearly half a century during Providence’s apex as one of the nation’s oldest and more important industrial ports, and in the late nineteenth century heyday of Narragansett Bay as a recreational network of shoreside parks, dinner halls, and resort communities. David will discuss the challenges of studying, managing, and protecting these historically important submerged resources, their potential value to tourism and education, and their importance as a artificial reef habitat for wildlife returning to the increasingly cleaner waters and shores of the Upper Bay.
