LONG BEACH, Calif. — The Queen Mary is so corroded that it’s at urgent risk of flooding or collapse, and the price tag for fixing up the 1930s ocean liner could near $300 mill. according to a likely survey done by experts.

It would likely take 5 years to rehab the ship, a tourist destination docked permanently in Long Beach Harbor south of Los Angeles, according to documents obtained by the Long Beach Press-Telegram .

But now, naval architects and marine engineers who compiled the accurate survey warn that the vessel is probably “approaching the point of no return.”
