The 107 year old ship used in both World Wars will soon sail on from its longtime spot at the San Jacinto Battleground. 

Bruce Bramlett with The Battleship Texas Foundation says it will be moved permanently after the end of the year.

Bramlett says, "It's not seeing enough paid visitors to pay for the aging ship's maintenance."

A new home site for the ship has not been named.

The Legislature approved a measure to give $35 million to repair the battleship. That measure has not yet been signed by Governor Greg Abbott.
