The "USS Cassin Young" (DD-793) named after Captain Cassin Young, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for his role in Pearl Harbor and was later killed in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal.  This Fletcher-class ship was built by the Bethlehem Steel Corporation of San Pedro, Ca and was launched September 12. 1943, later commissioned on December 31, 1943.

 "USS Constitution" or "Old Iron Sides" is a wooden hulled, 3 masked frigate.  It is the oldest commissioned naval ship affloat in the world.  It was one of the original six frigates authorized by the Naval Act of 1797.  The harbor cruise boat offered to dock near her for any passengers wishing to tour the boats, but however tours have been suspended due to maintenance on both of these vessels.  Neither I, or any of the other 3 passengers opted to get off here.
