The USS Iowa, an 18-foot min- iature battleship, is sailing mid land lakes in support of navy recruiting. Patterned after the USS Iowa, the two-man battle- ship is a replica of the long hull type dreadnought. The vessel's forward gun turret rotates and squirts wa- ter up to 50 feet from an elec- tric powered pressure pump using lake water taken through the hull. Power comes from a six horsepower outboard engine mounted in a well under the after turret. The craft about 900 pounds. Both the hull and the super- structure are made of fiber- glass, while the deck and bulk- heads are Iplywood. The super- structure is hinged to provide easy access to an interior equipped with bucket seats for the two crewmen. By way of comparison, the original USS Iowa is 887 feet long, 13 ;feet shorter than three football fields end to end. She is 108 feet wide. The highest Jraint of her su- perstructure towers 185 feet above her keel, a height equiva- lent to that of a 17-story build- ing. She is capable of develop- ing shaft horsepower and enough electricity to supply a city of inhabitants. The distilling plant on board can make more than gallons of fresh water from the sea every day. She has a fuel capacity of more than million gallons, and stor- age rooms enough to contain food supplies for men for 119 days at seven tons per day. Her armament consists of nine 16-inch guns that are capa- ble of hurling 25 tons of projec- tiles a minute to a target 23 miles away.
