32nd street Naval Base Home of the Third fleet Navy ships. This base houses the smallest of the Navy fleet. The South bay (South of the Coronado bridge) is not dredged as deeply or thoroughly as it is North of the bridge, and in the middle of the South bay can be found many water hazards, including derricks, abandoned boats and even a strip club! It used to be common (when I was in the navy) that ships were tied up up to 3 abreast at the pier, this is very rare today since the Navy has moth-balled much of it's fleet.
