Long Beach purchased the Queen Mary half a century ago, predicting the ship would serve as an emblem welcoming tourists along the coast for at least two hundred years.

The ship’s hull is corroded so severely from the inside that certain areas, including the ship’s engine room, could be prone to flooding.
