Sailing Seaway Clayton festival in 2011.
A repair was needed in Miami that delayed the boat through Labor Day and an injured crew member held the boat up in Honduras.
The crew member, a Clayton resident, is ok and has returned to Clayton.
ORIGINAL REPORT (Aug 20) - A staple on the Clayton waterfront, Thors Hammer - a former military landing craft, has gone missing from Riverside Drive.
The massive red and black vessel used throughout the region to transport vehicles and other large items departed Clayton on Sunday for what will be a two month journey to Alaska.
RJ Marine, based in Clayton, is moving Thors Hammer from the St. Lawrence River to the Alaska frontier after leasing it for use. A small crew boarded the vessel and left the Clayton waterfront on Sunday, crossed Lake Ontario, and headed for the NYS Canal system. The adventure will lead the boat through upstate New York, down the East Coast, through the Panama Canal, and onward.
