A serious leak in the Battleship Texas had workers scrambling to keep the ship from sinking yesterday.
The ship manager said that the ship had been taking in water through a 6 by 8 inch hole in the ship’s hull and was forced to close for repairs.
Workers said that the ship tilted six degrees to the starboard side, and they said that it was a serious issue.
The ship will be closed until further notice as they ensure it will be safe for visitors.
