Home Up FTV-Master-At-Arms FTV-Living-History Docent Outings & Events Restoration Projects

The following is a Partial list of the many Restoration Projects that have been accomplished aboard the TEXAS

by both full time TPWD staff and the First TEXAS Volunteers.

If it was not for the help the volunteers receive from TPWD staff the FTV efforts would Not be possible. 

My Hats Off to this very professional crew!


The volunteers are asked to "Read" and fully understand the attached "Volunteer Restoration Manual" before they start working aboard the Battleship Texas.
