  1. Back in the early '80s, as part of Ronald Reagan's 600 ship fleet plan, four Iowa class battleships were refitted & recommissioned. I worked on two of them at Long Beach Naval Shipyard. They were the USS New Jersey (BB-62, NJBB, Jersey new in '82, at sea in '83), and the USS Missouri (BB-63, NBMO< Firepower for freedom). I installed their satellite communications suite. I even attended the commissioning ceremony for the Missouri in San Francisco. The ships were very expensive to operate, so they were decommissioned a few years later. This classified ad is real, although the ad is obviously a joke (I still have the original). It was published in the local San Pedro newspaper, the News Pilot. I thought you might get a kick out of it.
  2. Can someone please offer me help or advice. I have a WW1 battleship that you sit in an operate by remote control. Im 6ft 4inch and even I fit in it. I don't have the motor or battery required, but the vessel is impressive none the less. Is anyone interested in helping me decide what to do with it? Regards, Aidan
