Main Deck Awash!


A contemporary drawing of the forecastle (pronounced foc'sle) from the pilothouse showing the main deck awash as the Oregon steams ahead under full power. The forward thirteen inch turret is in the foreground. The contributing factor to this is Oregon's low freeboard, which is the distance from the main deck to the waterline.
