Battleship NJ BB62 Ships WheelThe deck excluded, there's not a lot of wood on an Iowa class battleship, Artisans recently completed a basic cleaning and restoration on the Battleship NJ's wheels. Click Here to see the work on this restoration.

The USS New Jersey completed her Final Voyage home from Bremerton, Washington to the former Philadelphia Naval Ship Yard, arriving there appropriately enough, on Veteran's Day 1999. The Navy's decision to permanently berth the Battleship in Camden was announced on January 20, 2000.
