Seeing as Tanker found my earlier one so easy, I thought I'd try again.
Again from Google Earth, what ship is this?

Hello

I forgot to read the previous replies... :)

If she is not the Mighty Mo, at least I have for sure that she is a member of the IOWA class, because the remaining battleships preserved, those from the SOUTH DAKOTA and NORTH CAROLINA classes, have different bows and the battleships of the SOUTH DAKOTA class had only one funnel.

The IOWA is still in layup at the Reserve Fleet in Suisun Bay, with her future on hold.

From the aerial photo provided it doesn't seem to be the USS WISCONSIN, since the surroundings/berthing place are very different:

So the aerial photo seems to be of the USS NEW JERSEY in Camden:

Best regards from Lisbon,

New Jersey the right answer!

Yes, she's the New Jersey.
She holds the distinction of having been the last Battleship in active service, before her last decommisioning.
Thanks to all who had a go.
