Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS) and Big State Electric helped repair temperature control systems for the historic Battleship as part of the desperate operation to save the ship.

USS Battleship Texas“There’s not much good metal left to patch,” Bramlett said recently of the ship, which is in the Houston Ship Channel in La Porte. “As long as she remains in the water her days are numbered. The salt water is wreaking havoc on the hull of that ship.”

“We pump about 300,000 gallons of water a day out of the Battleship Texas,” Bramlett said. “There are places on the ship where the hull is so thin you can poke your finger through it. So, we’re constantly pumping water out and patching holes, and the water is constantly seeping back in.”

As the Battleship Texas Foundation races against time to save the sole remaining Wold War 1 dreadnaught, local businesses step up to do their part.

In addition to Custom Air Products & Services, Inc., other entities have stepped up to help. These include but are not limited to the International game developer, Wargaming, makers of the popular online game, World of Warships.

World of Warships is a free-to-play naval warfare-themed massively multiplayer online game. Players have raised funds for the USS Texas by purchasing the Lone Star Texas bundle or the “Valor” flag, available through the game.
