A shame. I hope they get it repaired. Thanks

Oh, I thought this was going to be like cow tipping.

Was on it last summer. So much history. Hope they can repair it!

Named for the famous "fighting' Sullivan brothers lost on the "Juneau" during the naval battle of Guadalcanal. It would be a shame if she can't be repaired.

I've been watching this every day on Buffalo's local news. It's heartbreaking.

There were repairs scheduled to begin before the hull breach, however, the water temperature and weather conditions kept the divers out of the water. The head of the navel park originally said that they had funds available to effect repairs, however, now donations are being welcomed.

If Lost Pict reads this, he might have some input as to
why she leaks and possible corrective actions.
