Thanks to Lynn Hall for the photo. That’s the guided-missile destroyer USS Cape St. George (CG-71) off Duwamish Head earlier this afternoon. shows the ship currently off Harbor Island, where, this story from last year says, it’s been undergoing work at Vigor. Modernization of the Cape St. George is part of a two-ship, quarter-billion-dollar Navy contract for the shipyard, according to this report.

    Such a beautiful site… to bad that sdot doesn’t deem the employees who work on these projects that keep this country safe “essential” enough to use the low bridge… but who cares If we’ve used the Low Bridge for years… let’s just grant access to groups that never even used it to begin with and take it away from the people that used it on a daily basis

    The vessel is a Guided Missile Cruiser (CG), not a Guided Missile Destroyer (DDG).

Sorry, comment time is over.
