High and Dry

 The USS Kidd, a Fletcher-class destroyer from the WWII era is a floating museum in Baton Rouge, LA.

Kidd was featured in the recent WWII movie Greyhound.  Tom Hanks played the skipper who took the ship on convoy duty escorting merchants and troop carriers to the UK.

Normally, she floats in the Mississippi river, providing tours to school kids and veterans groups.

Only problem now is, she ain't floating.  Too little water int he river.

Plenty more photos in the local fish wrapper.  If whoever it is taking care of Kidd, this might be a good time to do hull maintenance.
