There are 6 comments on the www.reuters.com story from May 27, 2012, titled World War Two battleship USS Iowa sets off on final voyage. In it, www.reuters.com reports that:

The battleship USS Iowa, which served the United States through victory and tragedy during six decades at sea, set off on its final voyage on Saturday, a trip to Los Angeles to become a museum.

With a cheer, volunteers in hard hats cast off the last of a dozen thick lines that had moored the 175-foot-tall gray dreadnought in the Port of Richmond. Then it slipped slowly into the San Francisco Bay, towering over the three tugboats that pulled it.

We should widen and dredge the Rio Grande and send it there to help deal with the illegal alien invasion.

I had a few trips serving on the Scharnhorst (41-42). I'd like to visit someday but it is off the Cape so I'll have to find a submersible. Do you know where I can rent one?

Check with the "balloon boy's dad."
I'm sure he can make you one with plywood and duct tape.

Watch out for Duke of York. She'll kill your ghost too.
