Cool photos! Where is that? I can't believe that hull is just floating there. That would be a fun project to work on.

BTW, need to teach your daughter to salute like an American, and not the silly British way. :)

Delamar, NV aka "The Widow Maker" due to the deaths of over 400 people (from how they mined the gold). It was a gold boom-town in the 1890's & at it's height had over 1,500 residents.





This is the old cemetery...

I've been fortunate to visit a great number of ghost towns and abandoned bases, places, etc but Greenlands Dye-2 Military Facility has been the best yet!

Wiki says she is the Aries: " USS Aries PHM-5 Hydrofoil Memorial, Inc. obtained Aries for rehabilitation as a memorial located on the Grand River in Brunswick, Missouri at
39°25′15″N 93°7′47″W / 39.42083°N 93.12972°W / 39.42083; -93.12972."

Fascinating that someone saved that PHM. I had a tour of the Pegasus back in the early 90's, hadn't thought much about what happened to them till I scrolled through this thread and realized one was just floating there, foils up, and thus a quick look through google took me back a bit.
