USS Texas. BB 35. 110 years since she was launched. She is the only remaining WW I Dreadnought Battleship, as well as the only surviving Battlewagon to have fought in both WW I and II. An important piece of maritime history.

Late last month (31 August 2022), she was pulled from her state park berth and dry docked in Galveston. Over the next two years, the plan (depending on the results of the marine survey) is to replace most or all of the plating below the waterline and fill the voids with foam.

There are some fascinating videos on UToob.
