@adelheid It would be cool if some part of SSN-720 ended up as a museum ship in the city. Unfortunately, I don't think the Navy allows for Los Angeles Class boats to remain intact. I believe the reactor is removed by cutting the hull in three pieces.

@fuzzface Probably, but we do have the USS Requin which is diesel powered. It is anchored by the Carnegie Science Center.

@fuzzface I know. Once a long time ago, my ex kept us waiting while he played docent while touring it.

@fuzzface I toured the USS Pampanito in San Francisco about 20 years ago.

@fuzzface yep, also, I can see the USS Requin from where I sit at work.
