I've been on that ship. You never really appreciate how big an aircraft carrier is until you actually see one in person.
Never experienced any paranormal activity though. IIRC, there was something about a ghost giving a complete tour for some people, then disappearing. Now that would have been awesome.
Have you ever seen the USS Texas at San Jacinto State Park? That is an awesome ship. They even have the AA guns set up where visitors can get onto them, and actually move them around.
This is one of ten 3" AA guns on the USS Texas.
Here's a some of the 40mm guns.
They also had a few 5" guns, and a lot of 20mm guns in addition to their 14" guns
The stairs on this ship are beyond steep, so you really have to watch your step.
