A unique propisition, to say the least. When in a random conversation, a friend suggested he’d like to convert an Aircraft Carrier into a floating casino and cruise up and down the Mississippi. Naturally, my little brain starts trying to figure out if he could.
About an hour of googling has yet to answer my questions, so I put it to you all thusly:
In how shallow of water can a Nimitz class Aircraft Carrier travel?
Similar information for any class of AC would be helpful. We’re only going for rough estimates here. At 97,000 tons of displacement, I image an AC tootling up the Mississippi would cause…waves…regardless.
