One thing I’ve considered about the Battleship is that it should - SHOULD – be moved and tied up to the River walk near the Convention Center. I believe this would cause a huge influx of foot traffic down town.
Now that we have to do something to the BB-55's hull, now is the time to test my theory. Dredge a mooring on the ILM side, move the ship and build the cofferdam where the original battleship mooring is. My guess is that it would work so well that the cofferdam would only be needed when the hull needed painting, and the battleship could stay on the ILM side of the river.
It’s an interesting idea. If tourism at the ship increased I would suggest changing the CC into a Maritime Museum – with more ships, planes and displays.
Ah to dream…….
