San Francisco Blog Posts

I just noticed that a lot of my posts on the USS San Francisco (SSN 711) grounding are dropping off the front page. You can access my entire January archive, including the San Fran posts, by clicking here.

711 is still in a precarious state. Without air she'd flood, roll to port and go under. A metal cofferdam is being welded to her fwd of the sail to allow the weapons to be offloaded, but that will give her only 14 inches at the bow and she's way down. DD at Guam is in her immediate future, with a long, slow trip back to Puget with mbt's welded shut for possible decomm afterwards. They've got a bow they could graft on but not with superstructure wrinkled, and there are three distinct wrinkles.
