Here are some photos provided by General Dynamics Electric boat (GDEB) of the arrival in Groton Ct of the bow supermodule from Newport News VA.

This shows the barge with the bow supermodule up against the pier for off loading.  The yellow transporter is on the pier.

This guy has a great job as he gets to drive the transporter carrying the bow supermodule off of the barge.  You can see the hydraulic jacks on the transporter extended up enough to lift the bow supermodule off of its resting place on the barge.

In this photo the bow supermodule is on the pier.  You should be able to see the wheels on the transporter turned to manuever the bow supermodule.

It looks like the bow supermodule will be moved into the hangar at some point.

In the mean time it looks like the bow supermodule is being placed on supports on the pier.  Notice the wood shimes on the supports.

From my point of view things seem like they are really moving along.  I suspect the Navy and GDEB will soon set the christening date firmly set so we can all make plans to be there for the christening.  If you want to attend the christening go to the upper right hand corner of this blog and sign up.
