Here is a link to another Long Beach newspaper about doing the renovations to the Queen Mary in ..... China of all places.That would require a transpacific tow which would be very risky because the Queen Mary had her watertight bulkheads removed some time after she arrived in Long Beach meaning that she is not really seaworthy anymore and if she should take on water during the transpacific tow to China,without the watertight bulkheads containing the water within one watertight compartment her hull then would fill up with water making it impossible for her to stay afloat.Since the City of Long Beach,California owns the Queen Mary,I hope the Long Beach officials says no to the China proposal.Here is the link to the article http://www.lbreport.com/news/sep08/qmchina.htm Regards,Jerry

The idea of towing her to China is complete ridicules and VERY dangerous for Mary. She is far too valuable a treasure to risk something so stupid. BadIdea
