From the Collection: Crossing the Line
Crossing the Line
Many former crew members have colorful stories about the Crossing the Line rituals on Intrepid. The Crossing the Line ceremony is held when a ship crosses the Equator. Anyone on the ship who has not previously sailed across this latitude is called a pollywog, while those who have are shellbacks. During the ceremony an initiation obstacle course is set up on the flight deck for pollywogs to complete. The Museum’s collection includes scripts, menus, certificates, photographs and even film from the ceremony.
