Not Too Surprised - "Navy will scrap fire-ravaged Bonhomme Richard"

Navy Times report by Geoff Ziezulewicz here:

The U.S. Navy will not repair the amphibious assault ship Bonhomme Richard, which burned for more than four days this summer in San Diego.

In the end, resurrecting the devastated large-deck amphib would have been too costly, Rear Adm. Eric Ver Hage, commander of the Navy Regional Maintenance Center, told reporters Monday.

Use the money that repairs would have cost to build more frigates.
