For a ship idea…

    The most beautiful ships in the history of the US Navy…

    The Spruance Class Destroyer!

    the Spruance class is elegant, but hard as nails..

    (Oh… and my dad did the "Star-Shoot" nav system alignment on them back b4 GPS was invented when he worked for Ingalls Shipbuilding down in Mississippi.)

    My dad was Air Force so don’t know much about the ships. more a Jet kinda guy. but this ship looks like damage on water.

  • While a Spruance Class destroyer is a good ship, none of them can get into the Great Lakes because they draw too much water.   The Eire Canal is only 14 feet deep in spots and hte spruance class draws 20+ feet empty.

It was purchased from a private millionaire who had purchased it in parts and assembled then ALREADY inside the lakes…
