Battleship Claims Artifacts and Equipment from Navy Yard Tour

The Battleship New Jersey participated in the Philadelphia Navy Yard’s open house this week aboard the USS Charles F. Adams DDG-2. The Battleship crew included staff members Ryan Szimanski, Dennis McMichael Jr., and Ken Kersch, as well as radio club members Dave Burgess, and Paul Doughtery. The three-day tour was a success as the crew brought back two tripods for .50cal guns, electronics parts and flooring for the CIC restoration, tools and equipment to fill in empty racks on the ship, and a bore sight for the 5″ gun, among other odds and ends.
