Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan -- along with other local officials are trying to keep the Half Moon from leaving for the Netherlands.
The replica of the historic vessel that Henry Hudson sailed up the Hudson River in 1609 has been in financial difficulty for years and has never had a home port.
The owner made a deal with the town of Hoorn to move the Half Moon there.
Now, Mayor Sheehan wants to hear from the ship's owner about what it would take to keep the Half Moon.
For nearly 25 years, school groups in the Hudson Valley have set sail on the Half Moon for adventures of discovery.
