America excels at military museums. On the San Diego waterfront there are all sorts of vessels moored that have been turned into museums. Tall masted sailing ships, a riverboat, and even two submarines. Inside one of the sailing ships, which had a metal hull, and a submarine, there were tick-clicking sounds coming from the sides of the vessels. My best guess was the waves lapping against the hulls.
The wharfs are full of squeaking and creaking. In the track below, the huge floats are nudging up to the docks, and some of the wooden pilings have come loose and rock gently in the water.
The USS Midway is also a tourist museum, and it still blows it’s whistle on the hour.
