|School ship Voyager (ex-YP-667) was operated for many years by the RiverQuest (formerly Pittsburgh Voyager) Educational organization as a school vessel. Ex-YP-667 was donated to Pittsburgh Voyager by the U.S. Navy Community Service Program and the Federal Surplus Bureau in 1993. The boat was loaded aboard USS Harpers Ferry (LSD-49) and given an opportunity lift to New Orleans where, with assistance from Avondale Shipyard, she was transferred from the Harpers Ferry onto a specially made cradle placed in a barge and towed to Pittsburgh via the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers. She was docked at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Neville Island facility for nearly eighteen months while repairs and renovations were completed. Voyager was retired in 2007 after more than a decade of service with the Pittsburgh Voyager and RiverQuest fleets.
