I was just thinking about ships - I watched a self-propelled barge coming up the river to the cement plant) and a couple of barges being moved both up and down the river past me - and I realized I never got a photo of the USS Slater (DE-766) that is moored in Albany, NY. The destroyer escort has been and is still being restored to original condition and is a floating museum. In winter they move the ship to the east bank of the river to the Port of Rensselear. The ship hosts overnight guests (girl scouts, boy scouts, and others) as well as daily tours during from May through September(?). The ship has come a long way from after it had been sold to the Greek Navy after WWII. The old shipmates, through a lot of effort obtaining donations, bought it back from the Greeks. I'll have to remember to bring my camera with me when I head up to Albany. I'll post a few photos of it when I do. Until then, if anyone is interested in WWII warships, they have an excellent website for the Slater at USS Slater.
