Hey Boat Guys - NS Savannah, anyone?
« on: May 21, 2012, 02:18:34 pm »
My LHS has a copy of the NS Savannah in the second-hand pile.
Anyone jump out of their skin for one of these?
Asking prices is $10, IIRC....

Groan.  :o I've been working on her USN half-sister for probably 15 years...  :rolleyes:

If she'd stayed in service just a couple more years she'd have reached the oil crisis and might have proven herself. Especially if they'd dropped the passenger spaces for more cargo.
USS New Jersey, BB-62, Vietnam
USS Neshanic, AO 71, out of Lindberg Neches and a WHOLE lot of extra details
And several other vessels named after NJ, locations and battles herein, and people herefrom
