They have really cleaned that ship up since I was there a few years back.

Did you see the Submarine?

No, we were strapped for time.

Next trip I plan on getting the flag flown over the Arizona and touring the Bowfin.

Wow, outstanding.
Reminds me of visiting the USS NC, BB-55 in Wilmington.

I was going to say the same thing. I saw her 2 Novembers ago and she was looking like a POS. Rust everywhere and her teak was horrible looking. But she looks great in these PICs. I am glad they are preserving such a great peice of history.

ETA: I just compared my PICs and its definitely a new deck. The gun plugs are also new. The whole ship looks like it got a once over and a new coat of paint.

Beautiful.

She is looking pretty good. The decks are shaping up, there were volunteers working on them as we walked about. Replacing sections and sanding them etc.

Can we send her up the Tigris or Euphrates rivers?

I would rather see the Iowa class being a baseline for a new line of modern battlewagons. Carriers and subs cant do everything.
