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.
