Although to be fair, the Navy didn’t necessarily want to mothball the Sea Shadow; that was a last resort. They initially tried to give it away for free. But since any takers would also have to take the Hughes Barge, no one took them up on the offer.
Today, the USS Iowa would cost $1.5 billion to build, which, combined with the Sea Shadow’s $200 million, means there’s at least $1.7 billion just floating out there in the bay, waiting for bored bloggers to raft out and walk around on top of it.
If you don’t follow me on twitter or instagram you prolly haven’t heard but i just got my cintiq companion 3 days ago ( at the same time with theworldismytrashbin (wickedalu)(almost)(sorta)(kinda)) and here i am testing it out.
