Are there any gatherings or groups in the Seattle area? I live in Bremerton, near the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. This is a real navy town and that's great for warship enthusiasts. The Midway was here for many years before being moved out to be a museum ship. Several carriers mothballed that are fun to look at. And nothing like watching when the Stennis comes into port. We have a a couple of nice naval museums here as well.
Would like to find a group of people into naval history. I have a degree in history and have studied the development of armored ships from the old Civil War ironclads on.
