The Navy warship that was stuck on the St. Lawrence River for three months is now underway to its homeport at Naval Station Mayport, Fla., a Navy official told USNI News on Monday…

Hopefully the Florida heat and the wetness of the Atlantic Ocean will not cause further problems for the vessel.

Having been built on the Lakes and commissioned at Buffalo, NY, you would think that she would be used to cold weather. I believe it snowed on commissioning day. In all seriousness, what good is a naval vessel that is limited to warm weather operation? If a port such as the Port of Montreal is open all year then any naval vessel should also be operational all year under similar conditions. Did the designers and US Navy think that there is no scenario in which a US warship would have to traverse ice clogged waters?

Murphy,

Someone didn't think ahead when they positioned the exhaust ports. You see these marks on all of this class of ship.

"What's with the what looks like burn/scorch marks on the side of the ship???"

Just a guess… Early on the navy said they were heating the hull while trapped in port. Also, they were running generators dockside to keep the ship powered.

Well I say let's keep building them and eventually they'll find a place they can be used.
