Golden Bear

The TS Golden Bear, in dock at Pier 36 on the East River.

The Golden Bear is the training ship for the California Maritime Academy. It was a built as an oceanography survey ship for the U.S. Navy in the 1980s, under the name Maury, and transferred to the school in 1994. CMA's website notes that "Contrary to popular rumors, USNS MAURY did not perform spy missions or 'black' operations." Rigggghhhttt . . .
