    The Battleship New Jersey will extend the current Fire Power self-guided tour, with a free 20-minute guided tour of the ship’s Engine Room, beginning Saturday, August 1 from 11am to 3pm.

    The free extended tour will begin in the crew’s mess, which is near the end of the current Fire Power tour. Guests will get to walk through both fire room two with two of the ship's eight boilers and engine room two with one of the ship's turbine units that turns one of the four propellers and two turbo generators, which create electrical power for some of the 1,000 motors on the ship.

    Guests will see the throttle board where speed was controlled and burners where fuel consumption was controlled.  They will get to go down to the hold and look up at one of the ship's massive propeller shafts.

    But hurry to take advantage of the free extended Engine Room tour.  It will only be available for a limited time.

    This engineering tour is made possible through the generous support of Lockheed Martin and the Henry M. Rowan Family Foundation.
