Historic warship’s future may be sunk

Historic warship’s future may be sunk | Philadelphia Inquirer | 05/23/2010.

This story is chillingly familiar!

From the Friends of the Cruiser Olympia website:

“Her hull is severely corroded, compounded by weather leakage through her rotted exterior deck. She has not been hauled since 1945 and currently has 62 patched holes below the waterline and two compartments that are flooded and tidal.”
