BREMERTON, Wash. (AP) - The Navy says the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz is still moving its home port from Everett to Bremerton. But the scheduled trip across Puget Sound Tuesday was delayed by a maintenance issue.

The ship is scheduled for a 16-month overhaul at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

The Nimitz returned to Everett in December 2013 following a nine-month deployment in which it saw action in the Afghanistan War.
