From: The Big Nowhere
Well if you are wondering if the USS Dewey could service a battleship, here is a list of battleship classes which displace less than the ACR-4 Pennsylvania, and should be able to dock inside the Dewey:
Kearsarge Class 11,540 tons
Illinois Class 11,565 tons
Maine Class 12,500 tons
Mississippi Class 13,000 tons
South Carolina Class 16,000 tons (weighed more, but has a smaller beam and length than ACR-4)
So technically, you can dock a BB inside USS Dewey...they just need to be very old, very small ones.
Though I do wonder what her actual lift capacity would be (maximum).
