Good guess Tom. It is on the USS Olympia.

Thought I'd show you this plaque to set your little Snipe heart fluttering!

Unless funds are raised to repair it's corroding hull, the USS Olympia is slated to be sunk off the the coast of Delaware. The ship has been closed to the public since November 2010.  This is terrible since it's the only Spanish American war ship left in existance, the interior of this ship is in excellent condition, and a great part of our history would be lost.

It is a Scuttlebut. The USS Olympia Scuttlebut was equipt with a chiller to keep the water cold.

Where the sailors gathered to drink and shoot the breeze, much the way modern office-workers gather around the water cooler. Because of this, in the navy rumors are referred to as "scuttlebutt."
