I can not think of a single reason why it should not be done. She represents a milestone in maritime architecture and deserves to be properly cared for. If they can keep the US Constitution in working order, they can spend the money to take care of "The Big U".

She was a beauty.

BTW, My family did a westbound crossing on her in September of 1967. Several years ago I put up a series of posts displaying the menus we had saved for the 6 day crossing. Unfortunately the pics are gone from Photobucket. I still have the menus, but I would have to rescan them and put them on another photo sharing site.

If you care to, you can read the threads here; (listed days one through 6)
