Once a favorite retreat for U.S. presidents, the USS Sequoia is now privately owned. On Thursday, a New York state judge will hear from both sides in a legal tug-of-war over the fate of the vessel.
Gary Silversmith, owner of the Sequoia, hoists the American flag on the top deck of the former presidential yacht. Silversmith is embroiled in a lawsuit with investors who loaned him money and are now trying to purchase the yacht at a reduced price. Robert A. Reeder/The Washington Post Buy Photo
