First time I ever came upon it was today via a search for all ships named after Ohio. Wikipedia had an image link to their site - but it was borked - so I went to the home page for the site.

 

Click the image below to visit the site.

It's a nice site... kind of old-school 90's as to the design, could definitely use a refresh... but chock full of neat photos. They do have a Google search implemented (see right sidebar menu) so it is easily searched.

I've been using it since the 90s.

I ran into an old guy in downtown Johnstown who claimed the Battle of Leyte Gulf didn't go quite as well as history records.

His story was filled with just enough facts to get me thinking.

He claims Kurita retired South, not North.  He ran into Olendorf's ships and sunk a couple.

We would find it hard to believe how we could lose a couple battleships and nobody would notice....

Investigation found his story to be full of horse-hockey....

But I found all the Navy History stuff on-line.  The USS Pennsylvania was sunk at Okinawa (not a common knowledge thing), but it was winched into a dry-dock, patched up, towed, and bombed at Bikini Atoll later.

Yes I found it not too long ago and love it. I've used it several times before in my picture posts, and for my own personal use.

She's a good looking ship - how'd she do in rough seas? 

 

Everyone else - I just found it so it's like going down the rabbit hole for me... will cruise it from time to time for sure.
