Stuck in the MUD!!

Ok, it feels good to see I am not the only one who trys to 4X4 with my vessel!

NEW YORK (Nov. 6) -- The legendary World War II aircraft carrier USS Intrepid got stuck in deep Hudson River mud Monday as powerful tugboats fought to pull it free to tow the floating museum down river for a $60 million overhaul.

Yeah, go figure how all those folks didn't manage to send a couple of divers down to use the Mark I Eyeball and confirm what was under the ship.<G>

OTOH, Anthony Fisher Sr., the man who was behind the whole Intrepid Museum project, died not too long ago. There may have been some impact on the whole organization & project, he was apparently one of a kind. Unlike many men who never asked to have his name painted up in big letters--but the project would not have happened without him.
