Picture #8

For the first morning since we departed from Bremerton 46
hours ago, the skies have turned to a low, overcast gray. USS New Jersey's own battleship gray, which hid her from easy recognition through many high-seas engagements, blends in neatly with today's background.  Presently, she is about 50 miles due West of the Columbia River, separating the states of Washington and Oregon.

One of the west coast albacore tuna fishing fleet boats comes alongside the USS New Jersey this afternoon to admire her stature, 55 miles off Oregon's coast.

Picture #10

Two fishing boats pass behind "The Big J" after a close-up inspection.  They are part of dozens of independent albacore tuna boats fishing today near her trackline.
