    I wonder at how deeply expenses were itemized, pure overhead, operating costs of a naval cruiser [or later sold for cargo use] to satisfy Admiralty or freighters so quotes could be made? All those are after she's been laid down; what about design phase justifying purchase?

    I'm thinking, do Naval Architects and those specifying vessels have same distaste for bean counters we mechanics do?
    Shorter answer might be who doesn't.
    Whelp, if they did they could use an eight car motorcade to move 250 feet and not tell the tax payers how much they spent doing that. Seems to never change even back in 1901...people power is always available and cheap, right.
