WW2-vintage aircraft carrier going cheap. About 5 previous owners, good nick. Comes with own radar and working hangar lifts, but no planes yet. Would suit obscenely rich and generous flight sim programmer and scare the hell out of most marina owners.

I say we should all chip in a couple of hundred notes and get Oleg to do a carrier sim next /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

$4,500,000? That's friggin cheap. I wonder, are you obligated to keep it historically accurate, or can you do stuff like make a huge disco ballroom in one of the plane hangers? Cause that would be one huge houseboat to live on, and for only 4.5 mil? Something seems wrong with that price. That blows away any multimillion dollar house I know of. And land choppers on it too? Cool.

Maybe if everyone on this forum all pitches in we can buy and man it!

We'll need to come up with some aircraft, but then we can sail around and invade some small island nation. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

If we could get a thousand people to pitch in $4,500 each...we could buy it AND have enough people to crew it!

Does Tahiti have a military?

French Creek Boat Sales frequently has military suprlus vessels for sale. This one was pointed out a week or two ago on a paintball message board I frequent, but I've seen corvettes, and a couple old destroyer escorts and coastguard cutters for sale there in the past. Never a carrier before though!

Did someone say paintball? Just got back from a scenario game in Harrisburg, PA. Car broke down on the way back (alternator). I would have expected that carrier to go for hundreds of millions. From the pictures it looks seaworthy.

With a compliment of 1300 it may be a trifle tricky to actually use it as a seagoing vessel http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


Make a nice museum or floating games centre though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
