History of the SS United States, a ship built in secret with funding from the government so that it could be repurposed as a troop transport.
@just-jeepin Yeah, that's been on my to-do list for awhile

She still looks solid docked there in Philly, but the lethal damage was already done when the furnishings and powerplant were removed, and is just a barge with an unusual hull shape now.
@aremmes that, and the powertrain's all still intact. It should be pointed out that the tiny surviving portion of the Queen Mary's powertrain (basically, just one engine room and the propeller shafts) is the single most popular attraction on board - and unlike the Queen Mary's mostly destroyed interiors, the ones on the United States could all be recreated pretty cheaply and easily - no exotic woodwork or other expensive materials.
