Teak eBay Auction
Jan 15 @ 7:00 pm – Jan 25 @ 7:00 pm
Teak eBay Auction

This 4-plank slab of our original teak decking is approximately 40″ long x 16″ wide with rubberized caulk between the planks. No bolt holes or damage. Would make a beautiful table or inlay in a bar.
This teak was removed from the main deck on the port side of turret 3, the aft 16″/50cal gun, during a major restoration of that area performed in summer of 2020. Judging by the area it was removed from, the method of installation and the coatings on the steel underneath, it is possible that this teak was on board during World War II. It was likely installed in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard either while the ship was originally being built or during a major reactivation in 1968 for service during the Vietnam War. This deck protected the armor plate underneath from damage by the 1-ton shells, which were carted over it when ammunition was loaded and insulated several generations of American fighting men from the South Pacific sun while they ate their meals in the mess decks below.

Student Day @ Battleship New Jersey

Student Day

Join Battleship educators for a socially distanced day of learning aboard the Big J!

On Wednesday, January 27, at 9am, students and their parents can experience a guided tour of the Battleship and a classroom-style lesson. This two-hour session will feature the math behind aiming the battleship’s guns. Students will be challenged to find the angles from their own “gun directors” to a target to figure out the distance from the battleship to the enemy.  The tour will focus on the ship’s main guns and will visit the real gun directors on board. This program is appropriate for all school-aged children.

  • Adults are required to stay with children for their entire visit.
  • All guests must pass a health screening which includes a contactless temperature check, wear a face covering and practice social distancing of six feet at all times.
