Do you know if it’s possible to see her in the dry dock?
Dahveed, I'm guessing here. I bet yeah, you could see it. Doubt going into the floating dock and getting up and personal might be a no-go. I'm hoping the volunteers will be posting updated vid's to their YouTube channel regularly, Document repairs to the hull. There was a sub that went into drydock recently. They posted the repair work to youtube. I bet the hull of Texas is in some spooky shape right now.

Ok, after posting this I see the plan (as of October) was to moor her in a day mooring at her present location. But it would still be neat to see them move her and start repairs.

I remember 1986 being on the Fireboat Tellepsen spraying red / white / blue water out of the boats monitors for sesquicentennial celebration . I was 13 years old , and my Farther was the Sr. Caption for PHA , and piloting the boat . A few years later PHA escorted battleship Texas to dry dock , and back in the late 1980's .
I've taken all my son's to the Ship , and park .
