Kennedy and the Queen Elizabeth 2, along with other luxury lines and submarines. Officials said the tugboat is a fixture in American shipbuilding. Now the 109-ft.

The exhibit is expected to open next month, joining the Kennedy Bunker and the abandoned Coast Guard Station run by the museum on Peanut Island. Source: WPBF.com
