Re: I'm not making promises, but...
I would be interested. This has been done with other ships, I think, but it would give a "new generation" an opportunity to connect. These are often used as fundraisers for refitting. I could afford to buy at $20, at $100 I fear it will be mainly for the "Ricos".
The original, WWII-era teak decking of the USS Alabama is currently in the process of being replaced. I am going to reach out to the Battleship Commission to ascertain the fate of the old teak. IF - IF - IF I can manage to acquire some (free or fee), how many of you out there would like to have a piece, however small? Is your interest only if it's free? How much might you be willing to pay for a small piece? Chime in, and I'll see what (if anything) I can do.
