Wow! She looks so much better than when they first pulled her out.

Yes, She looks great. I saw her a year ago and she did not look that good. At the time she was still immersed in the cleaning bath and it was hard to see her. Very disappointing.

They are doing good work to preserve this significant vessel. It took real courage to serve in this confined boat that had killed several crews before.

Much better than when I was over in 2011. By the way, just to be totally correct it isn't CSS Hunley, but HL Hunley. She was never taken on the Confederate Navy lists, they are quite insitant about this at the museum!

HL was the inventor's initials.
