Poormom,
They have several different Fan pages. Go on your Facebook page and at the top in the "Search" type in SS United States and they will come up.

The ship is pretty much gutted on the inside but then they'd have had to do it anyway for modern safety and building codes.

I really enjoyed reading the article and viewing the video. I hope they can find someone to develop it.

Very cool. It would be impressive if they could get her to sail again.

Now all they have to do is put the pieces back together. This ship reminds me of the SS Norway.

Hi everyone,
Last week, the SS United States Conservancy announced they business plans for the vessel. The news was an exciting proposal to integrate the ship into the Foxwood Casino development project in Phily. Anything that will save this ship is better than the scrapyard. Here is a link that provides everything about the ship:

Vessel to become a Casino?

An inglorious end for our country's namesake; but as you say, better than the breakers.
