I was going to start "boats that don't float my guns" in response to the "float my boat" threads, but this is better. 1. Graf Spee 2. Yamato 3. Hiru 4. Soryu 5. Several other Japanese carriers. 6. Many U-boats

the_survivalist, The COLE is afloat at Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Mississippi. I was there when she was put back into the water, roughly a year after she was attacked. This proud ship, named after a proud Marine, will return to strike back at the terrorists that crippled her.

A military grave site would be a more appropriate description.

I had a Wellcraft Scarab that sank three times in two damn years, finally the insurance company got tired of it and totaled it out. Got pictures of it sunk somewhere, I'll try to dig them up and post.

Or, from the previous World War, the numerous capital ships that were sunk when the German fleet and the British Grand Fleet met off the coast of Jutland.

[b]Edmund Fitzgerald The lake it is said never gives up her dead when the skies of November turn gloomy With a load of iron ore 26,000 tons more than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty...." "The ship was the pride of the American side comin' back from some mill in Wisconsin As the big freighters go it was bigger than most..." "...and late that night when the ship' bell rang could it be the north wind they'd bin feelin'." "...At seven p.m. a main hatchway caved in he said 'fellas it's bin good to know ya' The captain wired in he had water comin' in and the good ship and crew was in peril and later that night when 'is lights went out of sight came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" "...They might have split up or they might have capsized they may have broke deep and took water...." "Does anyone know where the love of God goes when the waves turn the minutes to hours? The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay if they'd put fifteen more miles behind 'er" They might have split up or they might have capsized they may have broke deep and took water And all that remains is the faces and the names of the wives and the sons and the daughters Lake Huron rolls Superior sings in the rooms of her ice water mansion Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams the islands and bays are for sportsmen and farther below Lake Ontario takes in what Lake Erie can send her and the Iron boats go as the mariners all know with the gales of november remembered In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed in the maritime sailors' cathedral the church bell chimed 'til it rang 29 times for each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down of the big lake they call Gitche Gumee Superior they said never gives up her dead when the gales of november come early [/b]

Not trying to be picky, but it the Navy, the only boats we have are submarines. Those big ones we call [b]ships.[/b] And we do a pretty good job of keeping our surface to dive ratio right around 1.

Saw a license plate frame on a pickup in Novato. There are two kinds of boats. Submarines and targets.
