Looks like a salvage job now. I wonder if there would be any way to pull it back into the water.....

Is it worth it? Christened in 1941 makes it 71+ years old! LOL. Can't believe the thing is still afloat. Maybe the web site is wrong but it looks like an old boat.

It is an old boat, and as it was moored probably part of the strategic reserve of some shipping company (they all have one or two moored old tubs in case one of the modern ones has trouble). On my Sailor days I was on a boat build in '45, there is no modern one I would trust as much.

There was a very large ship washed hundreds of yards above the high tide line in '69 after hurricane Camille in coastal Mississippi. They had to cut it up for scrap.
