With the talk of the Missouri and the hype surrounding it I went back and had a look at some pics I had of it.    I've been on this ship a couple of time and its amazing every time I go on board how big it is.    Certainly a credit to the volunteers that work on it restoring it.

 

I will probably be back on deck for rememberance day this year.

Whoa... Them guns are "big". :teethhappy:Nice pictures and thanks for sharing (+1).

Those guys in Missouri knows it, thus. They even try to provoke you. "Come and get it." Tho by the looks they run out of space. Should add "If you can."

Did you get to see the Golden Rivet?

 

I'd imagine the one on the MO would impressive.

The helm is interesting, worth a careful look. 

Even though it costs a lot of money to museum these ships, I'm glad it happens. Everybody benefits. Once they are gone, they're gone.

Thanks again for posting these Ralph.

Them shells are capable of becoming a bed. :trollface:

Truman Line, tight but feels homey.

I'm a bit annoyed that I missed a chance to visit Iowa in California last year...
