Trolling the Trolls
Dec 26 1965, Bob Hope, looks like wood to me. All I can go on is what Dad mentioned about the F4 ripping up the teak wood with their tail hooks when landing. He also mentioned being in port (Guam?) and the deck getting replaced. Another thing he mentioned is they were supposed to off load the nukes before sailing in Sea of China or Japan. They lied about off loading themTico had steel decks.
Oriskany was the only one left with steel clad wooden decks.
If you have a link with more info, I'd gladly appreciate it.
