WYOMING232k How to remove a turret from a monitor photos. The 1905 Report to the Secretary of Navy states that the turret of the ship was removed to re-machining - this would level the roller path. Gun mounts train a lot better with a good roller path. Mare Island didn't have a large enough crane to remove the turret from the ship and it was therefore placed on the bow of the ship while work was going on.
