From The Old Salt Blog:
The Independence Seaport Museum is seeking a new owner for the USS Olympia which it cannot afford to support. See Philly Museum Sends SOS to Care for Historic Ship. Sadly it appears that not only can’t the museum afford to keep the Olympia at dockside, but that it can’t afford to move it either.
Historic steel-hulled ships should be drydocked for maintenance at least every twenty years. The Olympia has been in the water continuously for 56 years, since 1945.
