  1. Another feature that pretty much every vessel has is a bilge pump. Is there anything special about the bilge pump on NJ? I don't even know if it is a seperate pump or if the bilge is just connected to the standard sewer system here.

  2. There are aircraft warnings lights as well. New Jersey would have had them in the 80’s. They are different from the masthead light. All the running lights are controlled from the tell tale panel located on the bridge.

  3. I'm curious about the dimmer, and the sign on it. How dim is dim? Are they basically formation lights so the nearest ships in formation can stay together? Do they still run dimmed lights in blackout conditions? Is that sign basically saying "It's wartime, we're a battleship, sucks to be anyone who doesn't see us coming"?

  4. Very cool information. I was glad to hear at the end what things might be like during wartime operations, because I know ships do not advertise their positions readily in the presence of enemies.

  5. The USCG regulations specify the running lights for powered vessels greater than 50 meters (328 feet). There shall be a aft facing white light of 135 degrees. Two green/red starboard/port running lights of 112.5 degrees. A white masthead light facing forward of 225 degrees and another white light above and aft of the forward light. The mast head lights give the captain of an approaching vessel an indication of the other vessels direction of movement. The masthead lights must be visible to 6 miles, and the others to 3 miles. Rule 22 and 23. For vessels less than 50 meters, there is a single masthead light. When at anchor, greater than 50 meters in length, there shall be an all-round light forward, an all-round light aft, and deck illumination as required. The light shields have nothing to do with the comfort of the crew in the gunnery tubs, but more to do with complying with the required angle of coverage of the running lights. There is a need to reduce any ambiguity when navigating the the dark. There are other lights that can be displayed for other situations and other vessels like submarines.

    When in Material Condition I (General Quarters), Material Condition IA (Amphibious Operations) or Material Condition II (Wartime Steaming), then the navigation lights may be altered such as having a formation steaming light (think a North Atlantic Convoy).

  6. Shot Clock.. did new jersey have one.. I've seen a number of pictures over the years that showed a clock face somewhere near the bridge to note WHEN the fired main battery shells would land or how much time left to the next firing of the main guns.
