100km, huh? Hell, we have the USS Razorback permanently berthed on the Arkansas River... ;-p

Did get there by truck like the one above?

Nope. It was towed across the Atlantic from Turkey to New Orleans, towed up the Mississippi, and then moved by barge up the Arkansas River to N. Little Rock.

A river would make it easy even in the heart of the Amazonic jungle :-) Do you know about any river in Milan? The Toti has been towed from Taranto to the Po river mouth in the Adriatic Sea and in the river until Piacenza, 120 KM off Milan. *Then* began the road trip on powered trolleys, then it crossed the town center and finally it was posed in the museum, right downtown

Not exactly the same effort.
Nice ship.

I need to check the map more often. Somehow I thought there was some watercourse in Milan.

Check out the Oberon boat "Otway" in Holbrook Australia. About 400K inland.
A couple of years ago they had to open it up to salvage some parts to keep the last Oberon in service...

It's just the outer skin to the waterline, although an impressive sight.

Yes, it's not the full hull but there was enough for the RAN to go scavenging for steering parts some years back.
