Saving an Innovation with Innovative Technology
The S. S. United States was a ship built upon innovation and technology. It seems fitting that today's innovative technology would play such a large part in saving her almost 50 years later. Chairman Robert Westover sums it up:

"We are the first completely non-governmental, internet created, national preservation movement in the country. With dozens of Web sites all over the world, having accumulated hundreds of thousands of hits in an ongoing, unified effort to save this national treasure. No other all volunteer national preservation movement can claim that amount of coverage."
