It's a money pit already. That's why it still isn't here.

You usually see these type of floating museums in cities/neighborhoods that already have a lot of tourism and it is clustered with other attractions. I would proceed very carefully and without rose colored glasses. I could see this being a big money pit if not done the right way and with realistic expectations. 

Seems rather ill-conceived to spend all that money bringing it to Jacksonville and dry-docking it, only to hang it out to dry in an isolated brownfield that will likely be under remediation for years to come.
