Special Feature:

San Jacinto Battleground State Park

Battleship Texas Hard Hat Tour

La Porte (Houston), Texas

January 18, 2003


Pilothouse, Captain's Sea Cabin, Bridge Radio/Radar Room, Charthouse

The Hard Hat Tour visits several spaces in the foremast. You go into the pilothouse, and then descend to the Captain's sea cabin, bridge radio/radar room and then the charthouse. Unlike the public tour, where you are limited to looking in through the windows, you see the instruments and equipment close up. The sea cabin and radio room are currently being renovated, and were in a "primer" state when our tour went through.
