They keep saying that it’s on but if it gets too bad where it becomes a safety issue, maybe they’ll pull the plug on the event. We’ll have to see what WG says as we get closer to the date.

Think they may need to construct a cradle under the ship, then build a retaining wall around the ship, pump out the water. And then work on her there.

Found a webcam of USS Texas.

Hard to tell, but she's either level now or listing to our right just a bit.

Tried to zoom in, but you're just blowing up the image, not actually zooming in with the camera.

She's been fine for a few days, her torpedo blister sprung another leak but it has been repaired. Most of her recent leaks are the result of her torpedo blisters leaking

This, the Olympia, the Lung, and the Batefish, is unacceptable. These ships are national treasures, hell start writting to the 2020 Presidential Candidates, Congressmen, State Legeslatures,  if it means attention is brought to the condition of these ships, start raising public awarness across the country to get the money needed to save all of these ships

This is all good, but like any renovation, they should plan for contingencies.

Replacing the rusted hull plates is one thing, but what about the frames underneath? The hull plates do have to connect to something and if the hull plates are shot the under lying frames might have issues as well.

Also what does the future hold? Will she remain in the water or will she finally get that dry berth that has been brought up. If she remains in the water, will they have a plan in place to dry dock her again in x number of years?
