The small radio on the table would appear to be a Hallicrafters S 20 Sky Champion shortwave receiver made 1938 to early 1939

Thank you RCR for your help in the identity of at least part of this set up, which I am still not sure which boat it migt be. It almost looks metal doesn't it.

Looks just like the inside of PT 3 which was entirely painted with aluminum paint however the port light is different

I am guessing (because this came with other photos) that this is Higgins first PT 6, although it could be the MRB-2 as well. Most of these photos came with little or no descriptions.
