    Interesting report... but will she be saved?

    I don't dare think of her on the beach of India or Bangladesh... are there not anyone at all in America that have any pity on this ship?

        I see this is posted very recently, but is it really "new news" or just "old news"? SS United States undergoing massive renovation to save the world's fastest ocean liner from being sold for scrap

                    That is one stunning image of TWO/THREE great ships.... France in the edge at left, and the one in the middle, and certainly a third unknown on the right side.

                                I've seen several places lately that there are talks of returning this vessel to NY as a museum ship... I certainly hope they will again succeed, but she has now spent more time in lay-up than active service. But miracles do happen, right?
