Part 2 of the (un)authorized USS New Jersey “tour”.
So we snooped around, trying to find the turret. You know, those giant-ass things (there’s 3 of them, each weighing about as much as an old destroyer) on the fore and aft of the battleship?
Now you’re probably thinking, “They’re right there! How could you miss them?!”
What you don’t know is that they actually extend from where you see them on the deck… to all the way at the bottom of the ship.
Long story short: we started from the bottom and worked our way up. Through dark corridors, slick ladderwells, and disgusting hydraulic fluid. It was totally worth it. Seriously.
