Greetings,
Looking at the tops of the PT boat cradle beams they appear to be covered by a fabric, canvas, or something to protect the hull. Do I have this right or is something else going on here?
Thank you
Dave

I would think that some type of protective covering would be on the supports that rested against the bottom and sides of the Hull. Now what that might be is anyones guess. I would say a canvas material, or it well could be a rubber coated material. Certainly something that would hold up to the salt water. With the boat in the cradle, I dont think you would even notice it, but I will check some of my elco photo's.
