It's nice they are preserving the boat but it should be don't with private fund and not taxpayer's money.
The ship is not like the Niagara and was not a US military ship. I think we could spent the stimulus money on better projects.
Definitely a pork barrel project.

Unless you do your research and see the vessel's historical significance, then you'll realize it SHOULD be "don't" with taxpayer money. It's a National Historic Landmark, and all original, unlike the Niagara.
