Once again, no clues or hints. Leave your guess in the comments. The first to give the correct answer will win a post on a topic of your choice!
And, for the record, I won't write about religion, politics or pr0n (though anime ecchi is okay). Anything else is free game!

Very true, although in this particular picture she's actually preparing for re-construction after being grievously wounded at Pearl.
It took me a while to get this one; I couldn't figure out what *type* of ship it was supposed to be, but I kept thinking it looks sort of like a destroyer but with a strange, crude bow and no forward superstructure. It took me a while to convince myself that the simplest explanation was actually the correct one. Based on the shape of the funnels, I started looking for records of Mahan-class destroyers that had been severely damaged (at first I was thinking rammed or torpedoed), and that's how I came across the Shaw. In hindsight, I remember having read about the Shaw's destruction, but had not realized the extent of the efforts made to salvage her. So I enjoyed this challenge because I learned something new in the process of figuring out the answer.
