That incredible list you have of the Elco information, is that some thing you put together your self? Did you go through each frame?

I have to wait a week before I can order the Elco DVD's. The amount of information on them seems staggering.

Thank you very much for the drawing showing the 6 inch planking, while it did require that I tear off all of the styrene that I had already in place I really would like this to be as accurate as I can.

While I am waiting (impatiently) for the time to pass until I can order the DVD's, I am working on the underside of the deck structure.

I am following the drawings from Allied Coastal Forces Vol 2 that Hugh from Loose Cannons was kind enough to loan me. I am following the drawing at the bottom of page 147. I removed all of the surface detail and raised ridges so the bracing will all stand out. Since I plan on displaying the deck up and to the side of the hull I don't need the two parts to align.

It all matches fairly close to Victor Chun's American PT Boat book on page 111, so hopefully I won't have to remove it if I find an error when I get the Elco DVD.

I was reading some of the older postings last night and the listing of what was stored where on the boat is facinating. I may try to make the PT doughnuts myself and surprise my wife.

Again to all on this forum, Thank you so much for adding to the veritable treasure of information in these posting.

You're welcome for posting the drawing, sorry you have to redo your work. I've been there myself way too often.

I've gone over about 70 percent of the 80' boat drawings on the DVD and sorted them roughly. My main interest at the moment is the exterior parts so I didn't break down interior categories too much. That's the reason the second list is so long.
