Brownsville? Seems to be the only place left in the US that does this. At least, that's where Bremerton sent the last few ships in mothba

At least the Navy gets one more chance to run into another ship with it. I don't think it ever got to have a collision...

Because they can't get the local equivalent to the EPA to allow them to tear down ships on the West Coast.

Sounds like the same company that scrapped Cabot in the 90s.  So they have experience taking apart flattops.

I hope it breaks free of the tow and blocks the Panama Canal

I don't think many ships with a gold E end up in collisions.

Yeah, I'm not 100% happy with how the Inactive Ships office has handled that.  The vets raised a bit of money trying to establish a museum foundation and the Navy kept changing requirements on them.
