***  New uses for old ships:

 

I’m looking out my window at the Hotel Jutlandia at the former ferry Spectrum of Scandinavia.  It is now, as I have learned, converted to a disco (although I have not observed any disco balls turning or the sound of Heat wave blasting across the street).  But it makes me think of how many ships have been converted to something else after their seagoing days were over.  Can you offer some examples?  Responses will be posted in the September issue of “Your Very Next Step.”
