The interesting ship photos/art thread.

As a resident of Richmond, I would have loved to have seen the Henry Kaiser Shipyard and Mare Island Shipyards operating at full swing during the war. The sight had to be absolutely incredible.

Oh yeah, just imagine all the cool ships that came and went on the bay

Looks like pairs and singletons (I think) so that'd square with up to date delay coils. Either that or an early install predating them really figuring out turret whip. First experiments with coils were in 35 so I'd expect a SoDak to have later coils.

In non-warship related news, the largest cargo ship ever to make port in the United States will be docking at the Port of Seattle this Monday. Given my schedule, I'll probably be able to drive near it on Tuesday.

It's 1,300 feet long, 180 wide and holds 18,000 cans (shipping containers). Apparently it has already made a call at the Port of Long Beach in California.
