The USS Inaugural was moored on the St. Louis riverfront as a visitor attraction. During the Flood of 1993, the moorings broke, it drifted down river and sank. During the drought of 2012, the wreckage was visible again. Sometime after I took the pictures, work started to cut the wreckage up and remove it from the river. I don't know if that was completed.
I did place the intersection on land. The coordinates are on the yard of a business that is located on the river front.
