I believe this photo was taken when she was going or coming back from her acceptance trials. Note the tent on the after deck. Must have been for the VIPs.

Recently I went over her GA Plan. Quite a vessel.

I did hear here that when people from OTS got out to the tug they found that pirates had got there first and everything had been stripped out of her and she was not worth salvaging.
