Anyone missing their Ohio?

Postby Bob the Builder » Tue Nov 27, 2012 9:56 am

I was just emailed from a gentleman out of Nashville that found this poor thing on the side of the road. Looks like it's been run over, unfortunately. She's a big Ohio, done up as the USS Tennessee from what I can tell. Looks to be scratchbuilt, perhaps from PVC pipe?

Anyone missing a big boat in that area?

A real shame to see it in this condition...

It may take a lot of glue!
I would love to hear the story on that one. :wink: BD.

BD, it was probably headed to PSNS for the SRP (Ship/Submarine Recycling Program), as the missile compartment has already been removed.

Looks like what BD usually takes home after a run at our local "Y".

Russians...
Did I see an Akula shadowing the treeline??

Seriously though, who ever is the owner surely is beside himself. I would be!
Maybe fate can bring it back to him if someone sees it here and gets word back to the true owner. It would please me to see it go back home.
If it were mine, I would fix it.

Ouch Rick! That's would be a really pointed statement to cancel the series with. Kind of like when Neil Young rips his guitar strings off after a performance; you know the show is really over!
