Watertight Door with Porthole, 27.5"



Steel watertight door with a 10" deadlight. The deadlight has very thick glass and is surrounded by a brass ring on the exterior. This door is coated in heavily worn and flaked marine grade white paint showing the raw steel below. Rectangular panel-like shapes are embossed into the door, visible from both sides. The front of the door has a simple pull handle, a pair of hinge blades welded to the surface, and 8 wedges around the edge to accept the dog closers. The other half of the hinges and dogs used to secure the door were attached to the jamb, which was not salvaged. The interior of the door has a matching pull handle and a rubber gasket lining the edge to seal the door when in place. The rubber gasket is in good shape but has begun to crackle in areas. Without hinges, this door measures 27 1/2 wide. The hinges extend 3" past the edge of the door. Condition varies per door. Of the 3 doors we have in stock, one has a broken deadlight, while the others are intact. This door was salvaged from the Mayor J Harold Grady, a 6000 GPM (gallon per minute) fireboat built in 1960, serving Baltimore, Maryland, from 1961 until it was decommissioned in 2007. This fireboat and items from it are featured on Season 10, Episode 8, of the Diy Network show, "Salvage Dawgs". Weight: 118 lbs. Item Measurements: 27.5(L) x 6(W) x 67.45(H)
