If she is on display please post some photo's as it's been 40 years since I was inside the old girl. Save your comments as I know it sounds obscene but it was a thrill for a young kid.

Have fun and thanks,

These days, I'm like a Japanese tourist with my camera. I will post some photos of it, C-III. Thanks for the encouragement, guys; I'd like to take 2 days, but some work duties will only allow for one. I intend to make the most of it. -S2
