Waterside Marina

The storm has passed and it's sunny, calm and chilly. Boy do I have great seats to watch every kind of ship I can imagine Trawlers, Canadian sail boats, Tugs, barges, Dredge ships, dozens of Navy ships, aircraft carrier, the Battleship Missouri, two cruise ships, Tall ships, the Staten Island Ferry, river paddle wheeler, a replica GODSPEED Bartholomew Gosnold's ship. (He named Cape Cod and Buzzards Bay my home port after he dropped off some people in Jamestown.) I think I attached a photo of a Liberty Ship. All this so far today and was went to the store shopping for two hours to prepare for the First Mates arrival late Wednesday.

Nope that's a Liberty ship. Very different hull form. This is the Wisconsin:

Like I wouldn't know the difference. The quote was a good view of the Battleship Missouri.

That would be a superlative view from Norfolk then. The USS mighty mo is in Hawaii. The USS whisky is the one residing in Norfolk.

Liberty ships all. Without them and those that sailed on them we would have no liberty.

OK, I will try to explain this one more time. My post was in response to CapeCodder's post that follows. (emphasis mine)

"Waterside Marina
The storm has passed and it's sunny, calm and chilly. Boy do I have great seats to watch every kind of ship I can imagine Trawlers, Canadian sail boats, Tugs, barges, Dredge ships, dozens of Navy ships, aircraft carrier, the Battleship Missouri, two cruise ships, Tall ships, the Staten Island Ferry, river paddle wheeler, a replica GODSPEED Bartholomew Gosnold's ship. (He named Cape Cod and Buzzards Bay my home port after he dropped off some people in Jamestown.) I think I attached a photo of a Liberty Ship. All this so far today and was went to the store shopping for two hours to prepare for the First Mates arrival late Wednesday."

My post was to mention that it is the Battle Ship Wisconsin that is in Norfolk.

Hope this clears up the confusion.

I read in the trade journals that the USS Abraham Lincoln just came out of a couple year refit. She'll be good for 'another' 25 years! Boy.... Talk about amazing fuel! Not sure which ones you saw. They all sort of blend in together on a gray afternoon.
