Norfolk: The Navy Owns It
Not much space for words but lots of room for big ships. Above and below is the retired battleship, the USS Wisconsin, now a museum in Norfolk.
Looking straight on, its 108' beam gives no clue to its 887' length. It's sleekness contributed to a top speed of 28 knots (or 32 mph).
At one point on our slow crawl along the Navy base's waterfront, it seemed that all you could see were Navy vessels .
This is the Arleigh Burke in dry dock. The keel was laid in 1988 and commissioned in 1991. Note the 4 turquoise colored objects being delivered to the ship. These are not high tech electronic devices. They are a gang of four, clean, porta-potties being delivered to the Burke. It makes sense that while in dry dock none of the ship's plumbing would be of use for those working on the ship - hence the periodic removal of the fouled heads with clean ones. I know, more than you ever wanted to know about this crap.
