USS Potomac

Oakland, California

"This was the Presidential Yacht for Franklin D. Roosevelt from 1936 to 1945. One of the
smoke stacks was fake. FDR didn't want people to know he needed a wheelchair. He hid an
elevator in a smoke stack.

"Sold to some singer named Elvis in '64 for $55K and donated. Re-sold by the St Jude's
foundation the same year for $75K." --Don
