    You are not up to speed on those I see.

    Those first five are museums, not ships! Do you have any idea what it would take to restore one of them instead of building a new ship? Where are you going to get the people who know how to run them? Even the Kennedy is steam powered and the Navy did away with Boiler Technicians years ago.
