Navy Oiler Museum Data
Today I sent my booklet “NEOSHO Class OILER a STORY” to the Curator of the Hampton Roads Naval Museum. He says he may be able to help promote this vision. The booklet can be viewed in pdf form at: http://www.usnavyoilers.com/Model/DISPLAY-BOOK.PDF. In the transmittal letter I mentioned that this model may best be located in a museum at the Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard or the Mare Island Historic Park. The Navy says that the best place for USS Iowa is at Mare Island. Mare Island is just a couple miles west of Suisun Bay where these ship are preserved.
