SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Savannah Belles Ferry Fleet has a new vessel. On Friday, the Mary Musgrove joined the fleet. All of the ferries are named after note worthy women of Savannah. Musgrove is a woman of Creek Indian and Colonial Georgia decent. She served as an interpreter for Gen. Oglethorpe during the city's founding. Bishop Gregory Hartmayer was on hand to bless the vessel.

"It is a way of recognizing were not the only ones responsible for everything that plays a role. Even though man has made this ship, it has been made with the intelligence, ingenuity and intervention of God's wisdom to do these things and recognize his presence in the world," said Bishop Hartmayer.

Other ships in the fleet include the Juliette Gordon Low, the Susie King Taylor and the Florence Martus.
