    Responding to USS Michigan post 1935 on; no not THAT far back. I've rowed, but never uphill.
    They scuttled her yes, but NAVY smart enough to remove turrets and barrels from the larger armament along with who-knows other materiel.
    Certainly no one disdains artificial reefs, the inhabitants and visitors opportunity.
    And foreign autos, could have made many, except a 1900's NAVY vessel is a poor supply of plastic......

    The most important job which was the lowest paid and worst job on the Titanic was men shoveling coal to fire the boilers.

    I wonder if loading bananas is still done by hand? I know the reason they were not done with crates and cranes was because the bruised so easily.

    Shipping bananas by the bunch has gone the way of shipping swinging beef (those are bunches being offloaded from the boat, composed of hands, which are what you see on the shelf). Everything is boxed now. Unitization makes for a more buildable pallet when it comes to getting the grub to the grocery stores from the warehouses. Grocers and shippers continue to negotiate their way to standardized containers.
