NEW TEAK DECK ON THE FORECASTLE
11/16/2015 - 12/30/2015
The Battleship's Maintenance staff finishes the installation of new teak decking on the forecastle (forward deck). The new deck replaced weathered deck near the Anchor Windless room passageway/ladder.
The Battleship still needs to replace much more of the rotting deck and can use your help!
To help, guests can make a donation on this website, purchase a piece of teak or donate in the Dollars for the Decks program while touring the Battleship, a non-profit museum and memorial on the Camden Waterfront, NJ.
