I hear the historic SS United States is in "imminent danger" of being sold off to be used as scrap metal.  Currently owned by NCL, the once 'fastest ship to cross the Atlantic', will be sold by the end of the month to the highest bidder, regardless of their intentions.

This is incredibly sad news.  The ship still holds the record for fastest westbound Atlantic crossing.  It has been listed with the US National Register of Historic Places, but unfortunately historical status alone isn't enoujgh to save it.
