tibird0041 - Hope you find a way to get aboard. I was fortunate enough to to a west bound crossing on the SS United States in '63. What I wouldn’t do to take that trip again!
The last time I saw her was in '87 when I was delivering a boat to FL via the ICW. We had gone outside, then came in at Norfolk VA. I had lost track of where she was, but recognized her and was was delighted to see her there, even if she was in moth balls.
Did you see the article recently in Professional Mariner?
Kind of sad to see the peeling paint in the article photo. I have one somewhere of that stack nicely painted, and the steam coming out of the horn. I need to dig through some of my old slided to dig out some old photos.
