Default The Navy's new offshore BEAST!!!

Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this monster cruising up the bay on it's way to the Naval Academy in Annapolis. She's 320 feet long and can reach almost 60 MPH.
That would be pretty bad to get spanked by a 320' boat!

well a carrier' s speed is classified, but the need wind accross the deck for flight ops, and they are 1098 ft long.

Carriers can hit 45+knots from what I've been able to glean.

Buddy of mine from High school, who was stationed on a nuclear Carrier said it was actually in the mid to high 50s
