I remember when I was a kid, and my family took me up to the USS Intrepid for the first time. I was really into airplanes and military hardware, especially due to the fact that my father was a flight engineer in the Air Force. At the time, my favorite fighter jet was the F-16 Fighting Falcon, due to it's maneuverability and it's adaptability to whatever mission was deemed appropriate. And as I stood on the flight deck, and saw everything from an SR-71 to an FJ-3 Fury.
The picture above is the Intrepid being moved to the Bayonne shipyard for 2 years of repairs and upgrading. The 36,000-ton vessel traveled a speeds upwards of 3 1/2 miles per hours during it's 5 mile voyage to New Jersey, a trip that took 8 hours to complete. I pulled the picture from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum's website, located here. And if you'd like to read about the move, the Press of Atlantic City had a nice summary of the move, which you can read here.
