laid up shipping

Can anyone tell me where the U.S.fleets are laid up ?

Google Earth show nice pics of shipping in the Piraeus area.

I doubt though the Greeks would be happy at us seeing their Naval base at Salamis Island.

Many thanks.

the US fleets are laid up at various places. Suison Bay, Bremerton, James River are three. Not sure if you can see with google earth. You can just make out some ships on the berach at Alang.

A few are laid up at Hartlepool waiting for permission to be scrapped. On again, off again situation. A long term project if it ever gets off the ground.
These ones came from the James River I think. Google "Ghost ships, Teesside".
