2 pictures taken pictures taken at Mare Island 6-21-99 of the Towers. Also one of the Wilson DDG-7 and McCormick DDG-8 with most of their aluminum superstructures removed

Pictures sent to us by LeRoy Marsh of the Military Heritage Foundation, Eureka CA.  Pictures taken by Elden Miller of the Sterett association ( http://sterett.org/shipchec.htm )
 

Both the picture above and below are of the Towers taken 6/99.  The Towers was decommissioned in 1990 and was scheduled to be modified to become a 'Power Barge'.  Unlike the Wilson and the McCormick (shown in the third photo), this plan was cancelled prior to the removal of the Towers superstructure.  The Towers was 'repossessed by the Navy, and is currently awaiting to be scrapped.

The picture below is of the Wilson DDG-7 and McCormick DDG-8 with most of the aluminum superstructures removed for the purpose of conversion to 'Power Barges'.
