Below the Deck: Original BB 63 Crew Art T-Shirts Yours When you Renew or Refer
A little know fact: Dozens of pieces of original art line walls from Broadway to the engine-room boiler, and doors below the public area. Often patriotic, humorous or down-right bawdy, countless creative crew paintings are hidden from sight below the waterline.
We've chosen from remarkable designs that express the heart and emotion of the ship's creative muses to share exclusively with our members. Unavailable for retail sale, you can own a T-shirt reproduction only through your membership. Through membership referral, you and the new member receive a collectable shirt. Want more shirts? Great! More referrals, more shirts.
Shirt 1: American Made by EMC3 Yoder. Created during the World Cruise, 1986.
Clutched by the flaming eagle is the Micrometer and Gear, the insignia for the Machinery Repairman enlisted rating. .
This particularly large painting is over 3 ft wide and 4 ft in long and dominates the wall of the Battleship Missouri's machine shop one level below the main deck. Painted in the standard ship colors available at the time (no mixing!), the bright head and flames make a strinking backdrop to machinists manning the lathes.
Shirt 2: The Paint Locker (NEW March 2013). Level 2-10-2-A 6th DIVISION
In a little-traveled area of the ship, requiring passage through the massive wenches that pull up the bow anchors. Artist unknown.
