: : Does anyone know the size of the B & W boilers on the Kennedy or similar class carriers?
: It's been a while but if my memory is right she had four boiler rooms with two boilers each. They were in the mid-200,000 pph range each, very high pressure and superheated.
: I don't remember if they were B&W's though, maybe CE's or FW's ? Does anyone else rememeber ?
I was on a sister ship of the Kennedy the USS America and we had CE's so i would think that since they were both built around the sametime and in the same ship yard i would think that they both have the same size boilers
