Re: USS North Carolina Moving ain't gonna happen
The "Showboat" is sitting in the mud and would need a major dredging operation or a big storm surge in order to move. She is very stable and will likely be fine. Please recall that a recent hurricane that hit the Gulf Coast did cause the ALABAMA in Mobile to move some. Several workers and their families rode out the storm on board the battleship.
Just heard that the city of Wilmington, N.C. is contracting a ship tow/tug company to move the USS North Carolina to Savannah, Ga. as part of it's preparation for hurricane Florence.
Apparently the ship could be in danger due to large tidal surges.
