    USS Iowa BB-61 News

    Congratulations to Stan Sato for becoming the first Volunteer of the Quarter.
    Stan has become known as Dr. Wood for his work to replace the old Teak and Doug fur decking.
    On behalf of the Board of Directors of the the USS Iowa I want to say thanks to Stan for his commitment and selfless dedication to the Battleship we all hold so dear.

    Stan certainly deserves this honor. As a BATTLESHIP man, he looks the part, dresses for the part, acts the part, works his part with perfection and ALWAYS has a broad smile to greet you with.

    Oh, by the way Craig: It's Douglas FIR, with the "I" vowel, not a "u". But I guess you gotta be a wood butcher to know anyway.

    Shore power update:

    Well the conduit is in and the pad for the transformer and switching equipment is down. We should be able to flip the switch for shore power the first of August.

    The Iowa has been on diesel generator power from the first day it docked in L.A. Harbor in 2012.
    Like I mentioned in a previous post we are under an abatement order from the AQMD for our excessive particulate matter emissions in the L.A. Harbor and are under constant threat of being shut down.
    In fact we are now shutting off power on slow days so we can have enough power to run our "Camp Battleship" overnight program.
    As far as the overnight program we had 1,676 quests Q1 of 2016 compared to 948 Q1 2015 an increase of 76.8%.
