The Battleship New Jersey is once again on the move. Its 77-day stay in drydock is over.
A $10 million refurbishment- including hull maintenance, re-sealing and re-painting- is now complete.
Crews filled the drydock with water Friday morning to refloat the ship.
Tugboats then pulled it to Paulsboro, where it will stay for the next few days before returning to its usual spot on the Camden waterfront by the end of next week.
The ship only moves once every couple of decades.
