Claim regarding one of just 2 surviving Liberty ships
There is claim in article that Jeremiah is one of just 2 surviving Liberty ships. What about SS Lane Victory. It is just a few rows after SS Jeremiah O'Brien in List of National Historic Landmarks in California. It states it is a WWII "Victory" ship (they meant Liberty ship?). Jeremiah is then one of at least 3 surviving. Who knows how many more will pop up. doncram 21:37, 25 October 2007 (UTC)
S.S. Jeremiah O'Brien pinups
These can also be seen on File:Jeremiah O'Brien (Liberty ship, San Francisco).JPG, at full resolution. Here's the full story, from the photographer: "This is at the bow of the ship starboard side. You can see it in the other wikipedia photo. In fact, that photo shows two of them. I forgot about the one on the port side.
If I remember correctly, the docent said that she was painted on their maiden voyage to France and then painted back over before they landed. People forgot about it until 50+ years later when they were restoring the ship and found her as they chipped away the old paint. I forget, but I think the thong is a modern addition."
I created the gallery and put a few of the pictures I took in it, and integrated some others. Others are located here, if anyone wants to sort through and include them: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1832211/ss%20o%27brien/index.html - there are some great engine room shots, among others.

3 inch are 3 x 2,54 cm = 76,2 mm
