Teak Deck eBay Auction

Teak Deck eBay Auction

Original WWII Teak Decking – Pair of 3-Plank Slabs

This pair of 3-plank slabs of our original teak decking each measure 11 3/8” wide, 38 1/2” long and 1 7/8″ high with rubberized caulk between the planks. No bolt holes or damage. Would make a beautiful table or inlay in a bar.

This teak was removed from the port side 01 level just outside of the admirals stateroom by turret 2, during our ongoing restoration of that area. Judging by the area it was removed from, the method of installation and the coatings on the steel underneath, it is possible that this teak was on board during World War II. It was likely installed in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard either while the ship was originally being built or during a major reactivation in 1968 for service during the Vietnam War. This deck protected the armor plate underneath from damage by the 1-ton shells, which were carted over it when ammunition was loaded and insulated several generations of American fighting men from the South Pacific sun.

Certificate of authenticity will be included.

Browsers may show different shipping options. Please note there are shipping options at your expense or free local scheduled pickup.

How do you send a message to someone on another ship if they can’t hear you? The Navy uses a series of codes and flags to send messages to one another.
Send a message yourself through semaphore or other flag languages, color in your own signal flag message, and help our educators as they repair signal flags, just as was done on board the ship while it was in service.
Every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 3pm in April, included with the purchase of a Fire Power Tour.

Student Day: Doolittle’s Raid @ Battleship New Jersey
Apr 23 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Student Day: Doolittle's Raid @ Battleship New Jersey

On 18 April 1942, 16 B25B Mitchell Bombers took off from USS Hornet as the first strike on the Japanese islands in response to Pearl Harbor. For the strike, crews removed parts of their planes in order to make their planes light enough to make the long flight .

During our Student Days on April 23 and 28 from 9am to 11am, the Battleship will offer free tours and classes to students and parents. But register soon, we are accepting a maximum of 20 people total for each Student Day,

Students with their parents can learn about this key event in World War II by taking a unique tour through the battleship designed for school-aged children. The tour will visit New Jersey’s flight deck and look at the differences between aircraft on a battleship and an aircraft carrier. Tours will also visit admiral’s spaces and the bridge to see the types of spaces that this attack was planned in. After the tour, students will participate in a challenge to modify their own plane and see if their craft would succeed in their mission.

This event is free to students, who must be accompanied by a parent, due to the generosity of a Battleship donor.

To register for this free event, visit 63691.blackbaudhosting.com/63691/tickets?tab=3&txobjid=b7d92d7b-efb5-4f7e-a36d-3291d6504d8e
