I think most of us would agree with that.  The issue is the money to fund such a project.

Subject: [NYHIST-L] USS Ticonderoga should be stored in indoors

An expert on the preservation of maritime archaeology is trying to
drum up interest for the construction of a structure that would house
and display one of Whitehall’s most enduring and significant
historical artifacts.

Arthur Cohn, executive director of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum
and director of its Maritime Research Institute, would like to see the
hull of the U.S.S. Ticonderoga, which was part of the American fleet
during the Battle of Plattsburgh in 1814, be stored in an enclosed,
climate-controlled building with interpretative displays telling the
ship’s story.
