I'd say the refueling needs for a boiler plant would in itself make it a bad choice. That's the perks of nuclear, we don't have to refuel except every 20is years. Plus they're picking up the pace on building the ford class carriers. JFK is already farther along at this point than the ford was.

Also, good to see a fellow nuke mechanic. What ship? I did an enterprise tour and am teaching prototype now.

Asbestos was removed when she went through SLEP in 87-90.


But she still has a huge amount of PCBs on board in the electrical system.
