SS Leviathan

SS Leviathan (former "Vaterland") in Boston
The former German ship "Vaterland" was seized by the U.S. Navy
during WWI and renamed "Leviathan". The original builders
of this ship, Blohm and Voss, refused to send any blueprints
or anything at all over pertaining to this ship as the Navy kept it for
war reparations for WWI. The Americans had a hell of a time
translating all the prints and systems to English.
