I have always thought New Ironsides was an excellent looking ship and that it was a shame she had such a short life. I think the gunports doors are a work of mechanical genius, in particular.

Sirs, on the photo in post #1, there appears to be a line of dots in the water below the vessel to the left. Mines? Mine Decoys?

Thanks,
USS ALASKA

FWIW This picture has been posted by me and others in other threads. Reportedly USS Montauk, and USS Lehigh in Philadelphia navy yard around the turn of the century.

The CSN and CSN had placed range markers all over the harbour so that their gunners knew the ranges as soon as the Monitors approached them.
Ah - that makes more sense. Thank you sir!
