    Mind if I take this next one?

    Who was she, what was she doing at the time the picture was taken, and how long did it take to properly get her to where she was planned to go?

    Nope.

    She was named after the home and estate of a former president

    So you mean like it's LSD 39?
    or
    LSD 35?

    Gator Navy

    Probably LSD 35 and Christmas Island

    On second look, it's a floating drydock. That's as far as I'm going to go with this one.

    Another hint, at the time the picture was taken they were preparing to send her on a very, very long yet very short journey

    A-yup! The picture was taken during the scuttling process, when she was sunk in May, 2002 as an artificial reef. The flooding didn't go as planned and she went down on her starboard side quite before they had planned on her going down. It took her 3 years, but Hurricane Dennis came around in July 2005 and shifted her around enough that she settled onto her keel, right side up, as had been planned.

    Shadwell (LSD-15) being prepped as a burn test ship?

    Shadwell was a home of Thomas Jefferson(home and estate of a former president?)

    If so, she was towed from Virginia to Mobile, Alabama in late 1988. (short journey?)

    She's still there as a burn test ship (long journey?)

    Short Journey - From above the waves to beneath the waves
    Long Journey - She ain't really leaving where she is at the moment
