Interesting that she's not only the oldest steel
warship still afloat, but that she's been in the water
continuously since 1945. And we all know the penalty of waiting too long between haulouts.
I visited the Olympia as a kid. They'd painted footprints where Admiral Dewey stood when he gave the order, "You may fire when ready, Gridley." I asked my dad how they knew those were the exact footprints, and was greatly disappointed when he answered that the position was probably just a close approximation.
I've always wanted to give that command myself, but Wonderblond hates it when I call her "Gridley."
