Looking for deck hatch and coaming (sp?) drawings for Higgins. I would imagine that most all of the series would be the same. We dont have this drawing and it is not in the Louisiana digital library. If not drawings, then any detailed photos would help. Thanks in advance.

Hi Bob,
We replaced our deck on PT658 last winter. during the replacement we had to expose the structure of the hatch coaming for the engine removal hatch. I am attaching some photos of that here. If you want I could take measured photos of our hatch tommorrow when I to work on the boat. Jerry

Bob, I hope these are helpful. Could you show us some up to date photos of the PT305? Jerry

Simply amazing work. What a wonderful example of dedicated and hard working group of people. This is no small undertaking, which takes people with a true love of the project they are working on. Thanks once again Jerry for providing great photo's.

Hi Bob,
OK I see what you are talking about. Actually, no I obtained them from a 63 ft Crash Boat. We also had trouble finding originals. Here are photos of us repaining the crash boat escape hatches. Jerry

Bob, did you see this escape hatch drawing at the LA site? It's smaller than what you're looking for but I thought some of the details might be useful:

Sorry guys, I must have explained wrong. Talking about the 5 square deck hatches, forepeak, forecastle (crews quarters), wardroom, etc. We know the exact locations and the opening size, just need coaming and hatch detail.

These shots are of PT308's hatches. I think Ted sent these to me about 20 years ago.

Bob . . .

I looked everywhere, the UNO Digital Library, my DVD, my hard copies of blueprints. Below is a mix bag of stuff. Sorry however could not find any real details, but a couple should be very useful along with Al's photos.

All the best,
Dick . . .


THESE WERE FROM UNO DIGITAL LIBRARY:












THESE PHOTOS BELOW - PLEASE EXCUSE THE QUALITY I HAD TO SHOOT THEM WITH MY DIGITAL CAMERS THEY WERE ALL TO BIG TO DO ANYTHING ELSE WITH:
