More on the Turner Joy galley

Here's a shot of the mid-section of the galley on the USS Turner Joy. The meat slicer is tucked securely to the port side of the oven stack. The 20-quart mixer is bolted to the small worktable, which was also used to store sheet pans and hotel pans.

Note the stack of sheet pans on top of the oven. They would come crashing to the deck in rough seas.

After serving as an active Navy destroyer from 1959 to 1982, the USS Turner Joy was dontaed to the Bremerton (Washington) Historic Ships Association in 1991 to serve as a museum ship.

The ship is open to the public seven days per week from May 1 to September 30. It's open Friday through Sunday in the Winter.
