Here is what a teak deck looks like after 85 years.
And I wanted with my post only show, that it is going much faster that the wooden deck is changing the colour....... many thanks for starting this topicUwe, Thanks for your research and update. I should have done that myself. I was relying on my memories as a UCGC Academy Cadet for 4 years and a Navigation Instructor at the USCG Academy for 5 years. I sailed on Eagle in one capacity or another, from "swab", as 1st year Academy Cadets are called, to Watch Officer.., for 9 summers. My recollection was that the deck was a grey color and the photo illustrated that. I wasn't aware of the replacement.
